KRIYA


A young DJ, enticed into a beautiful stranger's home, is terrified to find himself unable to flee from the death rituals he must perform on the bound and shackled corpse of her father.


Director Sidharth Srinivasan has stated that “Kriya was born out of an acutely personal reaction to what was happening in my country, where religious fundamentalism and chauvinistic persecution were ripping India apart.” He felt creatively compelled to explore his own discomfort around these issues but as a Hindu and a man, but to do so in a subversive, iconoclastic fashion.


Sidharth Srinivasan graduated from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University and in 1997 began assisting the renowned avant-garde filmmaker Kumar Shahani. Shortly after, he dove into the world of independent filmmaking. His debut feature The Tightrope Walker premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2000. In 2001 Srinivasan directed his second feature, The Divine Vision, a subversive, micro-budget indie film that frankly depicted the sex lives - both straight and gay - of working class India. Though this film was banned in India, it won international attention and garnered five awards. Srinivasan works in both narrative fiction and documentary film and many of his films have been included in festivals worldwide.
