Netflix Acquires Indian Skateboard Movie 'Desert Dolphin'

Updated: Apr 3, 2021

COMING-OF-AGE FAMILY FILM “DESERT DOLPHIN” SKATES TO NETFLIX.



Netflix has acquired the global rights to Desert Dolphin, a coming of age story of a teen girl in rural India, whose life changes when she learns to skateboard.


The story follows Prerna, a teenager growing up in rural India, comes of age when she’s introduced to the sport of skateboarding. As a result, she has to fight the odds to follow her dreams and compete in the national championship.


Rachel Saanchita Gupta and Shafin Patel make their acting debut alongside Amrit Maghera (Hollyoaks) and legendary Indian actor Waheeda Rehman (Guide). The film was produced by Los Angeles based Skatepark Films and Mac Productions India.


Desert Dolphin Skatepark, located in a remote cluster of rural villages in Khempur-Mavli district near Udaipur (the city of lakes and palaces), was constructed for the film with the support of Indian and International skate volunteers. The skatepark remains free for public use with the aim of continuing the social impact such parks have on rural communities. It’s one of India’s largest and Rajasthan’s first skatepark that is becoming a training ground for skaters from all over the country.


Salim and Sulaiman Merchant (Salim-Sulaiman) composed the music. Netflix will release the film mid 2021.
