“Yeti was made as a project film for Film & Television Institute of India, Pune. Every year the Institute invites film directors, mostly alumni, to work with the graduating batch of acting students and make films showcasing their talent. I was invited to work with a group of five acting students. Our long interactive workshops and sessions shaped up into a film, which is a kind of discourse about the medium itself. Yeti follows fragmented journeys of a group of young people in the city of Mumbai. It aims to mirror-image the themes of violence and alienation between the personal lives of these young people and the fiction world of a film they are working on.”
