Rima Das’ ‘Bulbul Can Sing’ to Premire at Berlin International Film Festival
GUWAHATI: After making its World Premiere at Toronto International Film Festival, National Award-winning filmmaker Rima Das' third Assamese feature, ‘Bulbul Can Sing’ is all set to make its European Premiere at the upcoming Berlin International Film Festival 2019.
Rima Das exclaims, "Bulbul Can Sing is selected for Berlin! I can’t explain in words how happy I am. After the film premiered at Toronto, I didn’t think we would get an invitation from Berlin because top festivals like Cannes, Berlin, Toronto, Venice usually ask for World Premiere. They accept other films only in case of exceptions! So it's a huge achievement for Bulbul. After Village Rockstars, received immense love from people, it was very challenging for me to come out with a new film. But watching Bulbul’s journey has created more hope. I want to thank my team and everyone who believes in me and my movies.Yes, we will keep our faith alive to keep dreaming."
Bulbul Can Sing is a visceral coming-of-age drama about a teenage girl, Bulbul, living in a village in Assam, fighting her way through love and loss as she figures out who she really is.
