South Asian Multi-hyphenates Shine in ‘Donkeyhead’ and ‘Definition Please’

Setting up your Netflix queue for the weekend? We’ve got two brand-new releases you won’t want to miss.

Agam Darshi’s “Donkeyhead” and Sujata Day’s “Definition Please” hit the streaming platform today, Jan. 21, via the Ava DuVernay-founded distributor ARRAY Releasing. “Donkeyhead” stars Darshi as Mona, a struggling writer who must contend with her three more successful siblings after their father suffers a serious stroke. Day stars as Monica in “Definition Please,” which explores the life of a former national spelling bee champion trying to reconcile with her estranged, unstable brother. The two releases mark the filmmakers’ respective feature directorial debuts.

“ARRAY Releasing is proud to distribute the work of Sujata Day and Agam Darshi, two promising South Asian women filmmakers who both wrote, directed and star in their directorial debuts,” Tilane Jones, ARRAY President, said in a press statement. “‘Definition Please’ and ‘Donkeyhead’ beautifully showcase the dynamic talent of their creators while sharing the oftentimes humorous dynamics of tradition and culture that film lovers of all kinds can relate to, appreciate and celebrate.”
