Director Statement

Storytelling has always been part of my weaknesses so writing Kumari wasn't easy for me. The idea of the story came from my co-director which we filmed together since we shared the same vision. Our intention is to show the tradition from Nepal in a more conventional tone of visual representation.
- Angela Aguila (Director/Writer)

Kumari is drawn from my fascination with unique Asian customs. I wanted to reinterpret what it looks like to be a Kumari, at least from an outsider's perspective. It doesn't intend to misappropriate the Nepali culture, but it's supposed to add to the discourse on the long-standing tradition.
