With an educational background in ethics (King’s College London) and creative documentary (SACAC, Delhi), Varun Trikha is a Toronto/Delhi based auteur filmmaker with a distinct poetic voice. In his short documentary The Seventh wish’(presented at Yamagata), Varun attempted to reclaim a largely lost genre of Urdu poetry. His second short The Wall was a search for traces of pre-colonial Goan histories. Varun's intuitive search for subterranean realities has come a full circle with his first feature-length film Raise Me a Memory which was amongst six documentaries selected for a special presentation at EFM, Berlinale 2023. Currently, Varun is developing a creative documentary Diary of a mother, which was selected for the development lab ‘Doc_Commune’.
