Set in Silicon Valley, A Nice Indian Boy navigates the cultural and emotional divide between a pair of first-generation siblings, and their more conventionally-minded parents. Exploring themes of inter-racial and queer relationships, family dynamics, and personal identity, A Nice Indian Boy offers a tender but humorous look at a thoroughly modern romance struggling to define itself through a traditional lens. Directed by Sukanya Chakrabarti. (webpage).
