Audacity | A Short Film by Anirban Roy (with English subtitles)

It starts out over a song and ends up where no one could have expected. A thirteen-year-old Indian girl has her first real confrontation with authority when her father forbids her to play the American dance music she loves. When she decides to take revenge, the situation escalates to become a neighborhood scandal. A dark comedy about parental authority, teenage rebellion, curry, whiskey, and house music.

“This short film packs in drama and social satire that could fill an entire feature. It’s fun to be audacious.” – Anirudh Bhattacharyya, Columnist, The Hindustan Times (India’s largest-selling daily).
