BWW Feature: RIMA DAS DIRECTED BULBUL CAN SING Wins At Berlin International Film Festival
It's the time for the independent film makers in India. Rima Das who created enough ripples for her film Village Rockstars and also earned a place in the Oscar entry from her country, has now done it again. This time her next film titled Bulbul Can Sing, won Special Mention at the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival 2019 from Berlin's Generation sidebar juries.
The film is already a festival circuit favorite and has been winning many laurels. Bulbul Can Sing had its World Premiere at Toronto InternationalFilm Festival 2018 followed by the South Asian Premiere at Busan International Film Festival and Indian Premiere at the 20th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival where it won the Golden Gateway Award in the India Gold competition category. At Berlin the film had its European premiere and competed in Generation 14 Plus category at the Festival.
What remains striking is the fact that the film maker has been creating works of critical acclaim independently. This is her third feature and has been able to get accolades just as her earlier one.
The film once again, takes us to Assam in India, the hometown of the director. The protagonist again is a young girl, just like in her earlier film, Village Rockstars.
The director talking about her film and the honor says, "I am extremely pleased and honoured to be received this important Award as a special mention from International Jury Berlin Generation 14 plus at Berlin International Film Festival 2019"
