About the Film: Growing up, I was a nerd. I was a brown-skinned kid in the white-washed world of Waukesha, WI. Everywhere I looked I didn’t belong. My hair was too curly. My nose was too big. In the public library I found my escape. Ralph Ellison, Toni Morrison, Jhumpa Lahiri and others helped me feel less alone. I went to film school to learn how to bring stories of identity in a multiracial world to the mainstream. Hopefully with humor and hopefully with heart. “Ms. Bula Banerjee” is my first contribution to that conversation.
