SummerStage, in partnership with Rooftop Films, brings you a South Asian double bill for the ages as part of Queens Borough President Donovan Richards’ “Free Movie Nights at the Queens Drive-In” series. Falu, a singer rigorously trained in Indian classical music, has collaborated with artists including Yo-Yo Ma, Wyclef Jean, and Philip Glass. In 2015, Falu was named one of the 20 most influential global Indian women by the Economic Times of India. In 2018, she won the Women Icons of India award in Mumbai, India. Her high energy performance is paired with Mira Nair’s beloved Monsoon Wedding, 20 years from its initial release. The film follows a reluctant bride as she navigates rapidly swirling drama in the days leading up to her massive Punjabi Hindu wedding.
