Description

Let's Be Out, The Sun Is Shining is about a shy Indian-American receptionist named DIYA (Lipica Shah) with romantic notions of love who falls in love with a charismatic Brooklyn bartender PADDY (Scott Lyman) to whom everyone is disposable. When Paddy rejects Diya for another woman (Madeleine James), she immerses herself in his world of struggling actors and musicians (Angela Gulner, Eli Bridges, Margaret Ying Drake, Jabari Brisport) who live potentially displaced in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Though Diya's protective older brother (Samrat Chakrabarti) and uncle (Anil Chandiramani) do not understand her need to "change the pattern" of her life, the magnetism and passion of this new circle of friends teaches Diya a few important lessons about lust, love and staying true to oneself.

In attendance: Bornila Chatterjee, director.
