Seeta's Demon
Narrative Feature, 35mm, In Development
Writer/ Dir: Shilpa Sunthankar
Seeta's Demon is a dark vengeance tale in which the three characters Will, Kartik and Veena- Indian and American- put aside their differences, cultural and personal, to come together and avenge the woman they love who has been attacked by a violent serial predator. Told alongside the Ramayana, a primary story of Hinduism, these three characters come to play roles in ridding the world of a common demon of misperception that has plagued Indian, and Asian women, for ages. At its heart, however, Seeta’s Demon portrays how far Gods and Humans will go, how fiercely they will fight, to reclaim the beauty and love that has been torn from their lives.
