After Vasan Bala’s MKDNH, TIFF has added two more Indian films to its lineup, this time in the Contemporary World Cinema section.

Bulbul Can Sing

Rima Das is back at TIFF’s Contemporary World Cinema section yet again with her new film Bulbul Can Sing which is having its world premiere there.

Here’s the official TIFF program note on the film:

Rima Das presents a visceral coming-of-age drama about a young girl living in rural India, fighting her way through love and loss as she figures out who she really is.

Rima’s last film, Village Rockstars, was also premiered at TIFF.

The Sweet Requiem

Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam’s latest film The Sweet Requiem (K​yoyang Ngarmo)​​​ is having its world premiere at TIFF’s Contemporary World Cinema section. Similar to Rima Das’s previous film, Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam’s debut film had also premiered at TIFF.

This is what the official note from TIFF says about the film:

In a follow-up to 2005’s Dreaming Lhasa, Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam return with a story of a young Tibetan woman grappling with living in exile, revealing a side of the refugee crisis we rarely get to see.

The film, running at 91 minutes, was one of the 19 South Asian Projects selected at the NFDC Film Bazaar 2015.
