WHEN: Friday 29 June, 10.00am - 12pm
WHERE: MAC, Cannon Hill Park, Queen's Ride, Birmingham, B12 9QH
Recipient of multiple international awards, Village Rockstars is an instant crowd- pleaser. A single mother and her 10 year old daughter Dhunu live in a remote flood-prone Assamese village. Dhunu is not a shy, submissive girl and with a vibrant spirit and imagination she dreams of setting up her own rock band. She fashions a make-believe guitar out of expanded polystyrene and jams in the rice fields with her boy mates. Noticing an old guitar has come up for sale in the market Dhunu attempts schemes to raise money to buy it, but as the local women complain about Dhunu's un-girlish behavior, her mother is forced to make a stand.
