Sibling drama is always fun to watch on screen — and in Agam Darshi‘s Donkeyhead, there are four of them. That’s four times the drama!
In the film, which ARRAY Releasing will debut on Netflix January 21, Darshi stars as Mona, a failed writer who carves out a life of isolation while caring for her ailing Sikh father. When he suffers a debilitating stroke, her three successful siblings show up on her doorstep determined to take control of the situation.
Donkeyhead, a term of endearment used by Punjabi parents towards their children. The film also stars Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy), Sandy Sidhu (Nurses, Legends of Tomorrow), Stephen Lobo (Arrow), Huse Madhavji (Schitt’s Creek), Marvin Ishmael (Degrassi: The Next Generation), and Balinder Johal (Beeba Boys).
Donkeyhead had its World Premiere at the Mosaic International South Asian Film Festival at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto where it received four awards including Best Fiction Feature and Best Canadian Feature. Darshi was most recently seen in Oscar-nominated director Deepa Mehta’s coming-of-age film Funny Boy (also an ARRAY title) and can next be seen in DuVernay’s upcoming HBO Max series DMZ.
