Wunderkind Anita Majumdar plays three teen girls growing up in small-town Canada. All three are students of dance, whether contemporary Bollywood or traditional Indian. Meena is ready to ditch her commitment to dance for the sake of a crush on her school’s most popular boy; Naz falls in with the boys’ crowd but comes to have second thoughts; and Candice is an aspiring Bollywood dancer who’s looking for a life outside her cramped environment. The three narratives explore issues running the gamut from teen heartache to cultural politics and the true nature of colonialism. The dancing is superb, the writing is sharp and funny, the politics are pointed and provocative. The best storytellers are those who can find the universal in the specific, and on that score Majumdar is a major talent.
Winners will be announced on January 24, 2015.
