Director Statement

The Tyger is very important to me. My grandmother recited this poem in a competition in 1970, winning it. One of the prizes was the opportunity to participate in a major dramatical production. My grandfather was part of that production and that is how they met. This film is dedicated to my grandma. Shanti Jegathesan
