The directorial debut from award-winning screenwriter Sooni Taraporevala (The Namesake, Salaam Bombay) is a wildly original and exuberant comedy about two battling Bombay families. Little Zizou depicts the wonderfully fascinating world of Bombay’s Parsi community and celebrates music, dancing and lush Indian scenary.
Little Zizou is a trailblazer for our Not Just Bollywood season of Indian independents, which takes place in September. This project is supported by Film Hub North West Central, proud to be a member of the BFI Film Audience Network.
We will be joined by director Sooni Taraporevala for a post-screening Q&A.

Curated by Siddhartha Dhanvant Shanghai for Sunaparanta Dattaraj & Dipti Salgaocar, Patrons, Sunaparanta.
