I met Varun Trikha, a committed documentary film maker and auteur from India, through our respected Estonian film director Kersti Uibo in the beginning of the current year. Subsequent to the initial surprising emotions after getting to know about Varun’s creative vision for one of Estonia’s little culturally distinct groups ‘Setos’ living in the South-East of Estonia, I instantly became eager to know more about his documentary film project “Peripheral” in development.
After seeing director’s previous works and getting a bit more into the project, it was clear to me that I would like to devote my professional skills to help bring the project to completion and to distribute the film amongst the openminded and creative documentary loving people everywhere. What especially appealed to me was both the author’s perspective view and also the actual extent of it. There are several layers of our (as of all humanity’s) cultural existence that the director wants to explore and present through his upcoming film. And I personally anticipate discovering how all this could speak out to different audiences all over the world.
As we are presently at the very beginning of the production of our Estonian-Indian film “Peripheral”, we would be extremely grateful for your possible support and will be looking forward to fruitful co-operation in the nearest future. In case of your further interest, please feel free to contact me directly, so I could provide you with more detailed information about our production budget&financing plan, distribution strategy and other.
