"Raaya", a short film about an autistic 7-year-old child, has been selected for screening in Short Film Corner at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival 2018.
Based on true events, the film explores the struggles of a little girl as she goes through a slew of therapies until a hypnotherapist walks into her life.
"It is indeed an honour and great motivation for first time independent producer to be representing India at Cannes. I am especially delighted that this movie serves a noble cause and takes the hope and optimism forward for parents of autistic children globally," Gupta said in a statement.
He intends to make more of such films which expose the viewers to an eye-opening perspective about subjects which still hold stigma in our ever-evolving society.
