<p>“Girls Will Be Girls” is one of the fortunate 16 films that have been chosen to participate at Sundance, an impressive accomplishment that puts it in the exclusive category of Indian narrative movies to get this kind of attention. The story, which is helmed by Shuchi Talati, takes place at a boarding school tucked away in a little Indian village in the Himalayas.</p>
<p>It follows the journey of 16-year-old Mira, whose mother’s unfulfilled coming-of-age experiences are intertwined with her own rebellious emergence. Produced by Pushing Buttons Studios, which Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal founded in March 2021, the movie is their first motion picture venture. Renowned Malayalam actress Kani Kusruti, Jitin Gulati, and rookies Preeti Panigrahi and Kesav Binoy Kiron play key parts in the cast.</p>
<p>“I am delighted that my first feature has been selected at the Mecca of cinema, Sundance,” stated filmmaker Shuchi in reference to the movie. The fact that a film that was conceived and filmed in India was accepted into this enormous international festival is encouraging. A mother and daughter’s love story is at the center of this coming-of-age drama, and while it is deeply founded in Indian culture, I’m delighted it appeals to people on many other continents.”</p>
<p>“Ali and I set out on this production with a vision to tell original stories,” Richa Chadha said. The fact that “Girls Will Be Girls” made it to Sundance is proof of our dedication to a powerful narrative. We are ecstatic beyond measure. We’ve been on a mission to redefine tales and push limits, and we hope that the film will resonate with viewers everywhere. I’m also thrilled that Shuchi’s new voice, her cinematic perspective, and several standout performances from our rookie performers will be seen by a wider audience.”</p>
<p>“It’s a dream come true to have our debut production at Sundance,” Ali said. We hope that “Girls Will Be Girls” has a lasting impression on the audience because it is more than simply a movie—it’s a celebration of storytelling. The praise received at Sundance is a tribute to the passion and devotion of our whole crew, as this production is a labor of love.”</p>
<p>The movie is a co-production between France’s Dolce Vita Films, Crawling Angel Films, and Pushing Buttons Studios. It is an Indo-French production. “Girls Will Be Girls” has already won several awards and accolades throughout the world, including the VFF Talent Highlight Award, the Arte Kino Prize, and the Cinema Du Monde. In 2022, it was called the Berlinale Talents Project Market.</p>
