Girls Will Be Girls- Preview Screening 18

Part of South Asian Heritage Month 2024
Shuchi Talati, India, 2024, 118m.

For South Asian Heritage Month we present a special preview screening of the Sundance prizewinning Girls Will Be Girls, with a pre-recorded introduction by director Shuchi Talati.

In a strict boarding school nestled in the Himalayas, 16-year-old Mira discovers desire and romance. But her sexual, rebellious awakening is disrupted by her mother who never got to come of age herself. This stellar debut feature from Shuchi Talati won the World Cinema Audience Award and the Special Jury Award for Acting at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival.

Director’s Note:

‘Girls Will Be Girls is set in a conservative boarding school, much like the school I attended, where girls are policed, ostensibly to protect their “virtue.” Despite this, I saw fierce, funny girls and women all around who subverted and circumvented the social and moral codes. In Girls Will Be Girls, I wanted to write about these subversive women who populated my life but never my screens and to expand the narratives that are available to Indian women.’
