Director Biography - Manyaa Saluja

My vision is to make people aware about the mental state of those who are fighting cancer.

Through our film, we wish to portray how a women who is struggling from first knowing and accepting about her being infected, to how she will fight or give up. We wish that we are able to convey the feelings of hardships and suffering a cancer survivor or anyone that’s going through cancer may feel.

Our film is visually demonstrated through a mix of abstract (dominant) and narrative animation, as artists we leave the meaning open to the audience but we hope our concept is conveyed.
