Bollywood Dreaming


In Bollywood Dreaming Cornel Ozies tells the story of 16-year-old Jedda Rae Hill, a young African-American-Aboriginal girl who doesn't like to conform to the norm: she skates, does boxing and loves watching and dancing to Bollywood movies.

Her world is a mixture of real time and fantasy. Bollywood Dreaming follows her everyday life and explores her dreams of being a Bollywood actor.

Boys treat me like a girl sometimes, that's annoying! — Jedda Rae Hill, actor
