Ali Fazal and Richa Chadha launch their production outfit Pushing Buttons Studios

The company is set up to tell stories rooted in the Indian ethos for a global audience. They are ready to kick off with Girls Will Be Girls, which is is the only Indian selection of the 10 projects chosen for the Berlinale Talents Script Station program this year.

Written and to be directed by Shuchi Talati, the film is set in an elite boarding school in a small Himalayan hill town in northern India and follows the story of a 16-year-old girl, whose rebellious coming-of-age is hijacked by her mother who never got to come-of-age.

The script has also been selected for the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film Lab, and it won a New York State Council of the Arts Grant for development. New York based AFI graduate Talati has previously directed several shorts including A Period Piece which was an SXSW selection in 2020.
