I am thrilled that my short film, Beneath Us, will be having its Canadian premiere at the 10th annual MOSAIC INTERNATIONAL SOUTH ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL @mosaic_misaff in Mississauga at the Living Arts Centre (4141 Living Arts Dr) at Sunday March 26th at 4pm. It is part of the Canadian Shorts Program and is being presented with @bipoctvfilm .
Thanks so much to the festival for giving us a chance to show this work. This film means a lot to me as a filmmaker and on a personal level. I had originally scheduled to shoot it in Tijuana in early 2019 but had to cancel when my mother passed away. We finally did go to camera late that year (just before the pandemic!) and finished it deep into our collective isolation. My brother Sohrab helped a lot with the film, some investment, and some medical advisement to help cast and production. He saw the film before he passed and was really proud of me and what we had accomplished together. That’s not something I will ever forget.
This’ll probably be the last screening at a festival for the foreseeable future so please do try to make it out if you can. ❤️
I owe a lot to our fantastic cast and crew. Thank you so much for your efforts and dedication to your craft. I’ll be posting tons more about the film and those wonderful people in the coming weeks. Thanks also to the @ontarioartscouncil that provided financial support.
