Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month is Meera Menon's Farah Goes Bang.
Here's the synopsis: Farah hits the road with her buddies to stump for John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election, hoping the trip will be her opportunity to finally shed her unwanted virginity. She soon finds her efforts on both political and sexual fronts continuously thwarted. Comically balancing that moment’s climate of intolerance with a universal coming-of-age tale, Farah Goes Bang paints a comic portrait of the overdue growing pains of a group of girlfriends and the country itself.
The script is co-written by Menon and Laura Goode, who also produced the film. It's Menon's first feature.
