The Assamese film "Bomba Ride" is screened at the 52nd Indian Panorama section of the Goa International Film Festival.

Directed by Bishwajit Bora, "Bomba Ride" is in Mishing language. 

The film is about a primary school located near the banks of the Brahmaputra River, which is the life line of many tribes in Assam. The main struggle of the teachers of the school is to keep it running. Reason? It has only one student, named Boomba. But a time comes when the school is on the verge of collapse.
