Director Statement

Radha was born out of a desire to explore the relation between memory and identity. While it could be described as a supernatural drama, I find it more accurate to say that it belongs to the genre of Cosmic Horror, which pits human beings against creatures and forces that exceed their ability to make sense of the world, and remind them how insignificant and helpless we all are in the grand scheme of things.

Influences : Peter Weir (The Last Wave, Picnic at Hanging Rock), Lovecraftian Horror
