Junky Punky Girlz
A short, humorous film!
One afternoon in the life of a young woman from the East Village in
New York City...
With the help of two of her friends, she goes to get her nose
This simple act leads her to examine her feelings regarding
her traditional Indian Heritage -- what this heritage
means to her, when her daily life is immersed in things American...
Mix in a shopkeeper who only speaks Hindi,
her concerned Indian mother, a couple of
nose-rings, a filet-o-fish -- and you get --
Junky Punky Girlz!
