LIFF 2019: Bulbul Can Sing

Director: Rima Das
Starring: Banita Thakuriya, Arnali Das, Pakija Begam, Manoranjan Das
Duration: 95 min

Three teenage best friends in rural Assam, northeast India, are on the cusp of adulthood. As they forge their distinct personalities, they must deal with the reality of outmoded customs that threaten their very existence. Love, secrecy, pathos, humour, and passion – the film has it all. Rima Das made a global splash with Village Rockstars and Bulbul Can Sing continues to prove her humane, world-class talent. A coming of age tale that is a breath of fresh air, Bulbul Can Sing won prestigious awards at the Berlin, Dublin, Singapore and Mumbai film festivals.
