A heartfelt, acutely honest portrait of rural Indian adolescence

Drama Bulbul Can Sing News

Rima Das follows up ‘Village Rockstars’ with this story of an adolescent girl coming of age in a small Indian village

Fifteen-year-old Bulbul, a schoolgirl in a farming community in Assam, is at an age when she has started to try out her womanhood. She’s almost grown, but there is an innocence to her exploration, like a child dressing up in her mother’s sari. She is bowled over when a lovelorn fellow student woos her with poetry, but finds herself at odds with strict patriarchal customs of her community. This intimate, naturalistic drama from Rima Das follows Bulbul as she negotiates shame and tragedy, and emerges the other side with a newfound strength.
