Indian director Aneek Chaudhri (“The Wife’s Letter”, “White“) has completed production on his most recent production “Cactus”. Shot in black and white, the film contains two extended takes that represent different eras (B.C and A.D.). The film was inspired by Michalango’s iconic sculpture “Pieta”.

“Cactus” will be making it’s international debut this year. A trailer for the film has been released by Mon Avis Entertainment and can be viewed below.

Hello, my name is Adam Symchuk and I am from Canada. It was during my teenage years that I became fascinated with Japanese film, in particular, exploitation and horror. I carried my fascination with the genre with me as an adult and began to grow a deeper appreciation in various genres from Japan, Korea, Thailand, and China. I hope to grow my knowledge of film across Asia and will continue to explore this through my reviews.
