About Wishful Whiskers


For little Ella, tagging along with her dad to his business lunch is no fun. That is, until she notices something. Her dad’s business partner has a fluffy white mustache, which wiggles when he eats. It’s fascinating. Suddenly everyone else has one too! Why doesn’t she have one? Her mission is clear: she must get her own mustache, and it must be better than what everyone else has.
Wishful Whiskers is an original short film written and directed by Pulkit Datta and produced by Russell Sheaffer. Both playful and surreal, this short film grapples with gender and growing up in a way that will speak to kids young and old.
