MOONLIGHT DREAMS

UNCOMBED BUDDHA

Krishna, 17 years-old and pregnant, returns to her village home in rural West Bengal to face her family and challenge the marriage of Tara, her beloved younger sister. Faced with patriarchy and the generational oppression of women the reunited sisters must reconcile their differences and make a fateful choice.

Shot on location in Sunderbans Delta, West Bengal, India.

After over 30 official selections, including at Oscar and Bafta qualifying festivals, Moonlight Dreams premiered in the UK at Raindance 2020 and launched online on Omeleto and Nowness on International Day of the Girl.
