In July 2015, Rakesh Baruah, a student at the Columbia University Film School, used the Cranford Public Library as the setting for his short comedy entitled “Ms. Bula Banerjee.” The film stars Aparna Nancherla, an up-and-coming writer, stand-up comedian, and actor, who was recently featured in an article in the New York Times. Ms. Nancherla plays Bula Banerjee, a quiet librarian who must take a stand when a brash consultant arrives to modernize the business. Mr. Baruah will introduce the film and field questions about the process of making it. (Click here to view the trailer.) See if you can spot library staff members among the extras! Admission to the program is free and all are welcome. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.
