Alien Kulture


London, 1979. In order to pursue his secret musical dreams and unlikely punk-rock ambitions with a group of his misfit friends, Sunny Nirula, a 1.5-generation British Indian trapped between subcultures, is inspired to escape the conservative trappings of his South Asian community and take the underground punk scene by storm. In doing so, Sunny learns to stand up against his highly politicized and insular-minded older brother, Lucky, to claim his identity, and define his place in racially divided, Thatcher-era England.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
