I’m working on a movie! FARAH GOES BANG makes its internet home here.
FARAH GOES BANG tells the story of Farah Mahtab, a woman in her twenties who tries to lose her virginity while on the road campaigning for presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004. Farah and her friends K.J. and Roopa follow the campaign trail across historic Route 66 on their way to Ohio, the central battleground state of 2004, seizing control of this charged moment in their lives and the life of their country.
FARAH GOES BANG is a valentine to contemporary feminism, youth in revolt, and the passionate politics of idealism. It is the travelogue of three women out on a highway belonging not to suicidal housewives or bubblegum pop stars, but to young women as agents, as doers, as authors of their own American odyssey. In this way, FARAH updates the classic American tradition of the Western, telling a new trail story–whose subjects are both cowgirls and Indians, both heroines and outlaws–in a diverse, powerful, and hilarious female voice.
