Village Rockstars

As visually stunning as it is delightful, Village Rockstars is a labor of love to Assam, every frame brimming with affection. Not surprising given that writer/director Rima Das hails from Chhaygaon, where the film is set.

A magical coming-of-age film, reminiscent of Satyajit Ray, it follows the feisty young Dhunu and her frolicking band of friends, who rock out to their styrofoam instruments and dream of becoming real musicians. When the village elders complain about Dhunu’s tomboyish ways, her mother stands up for her, in the film’s subtle yet radical feminist gesture.

A not-to-be-missed offering at this year’s festival, this feel-good indie favorite is a perfect antidote to “poverty porn.”

“Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, VILLAGE ROCKSTARS has a soul and vision rare in Indian cinema today and marks Das as a major emerging filmmaker.” – IFFLA
