Ava DuVernay’s outfit ARRAY Releasing continues to build up filmmakers of color and women. Its latest slate, including the films “Donkeyhead” and “Definition Please,” will premiere January 21 on Netflix in the U.S., U.K., Australia, and New Zealand. Exclusively on IndieWire, watch the trailer premiere below for “Donkeyhead,” directed by and starring Agam Darshi, ahead of its streaming release.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film, which world-premiered at the TIFF Bell Lightbox and tackles the Punjabi Sikh experience in Canada: “‘Donkeyhead’ is a film whose title references a term of endearment used by Punjabi parents towards their children. Starring, written and directed by Darshi, the film follows Mona, a failed writer who carves out a life of isolation while caring for her ailing Sikh father. When he suffers a debilitating stroke, her three successful siblings show up on her doorstep determined to take control of the situation.”
