Over the past two months, she has been in conversation with Simisolaoluwa Akande (Ojumo Ti Mo) and Tina Pasotra (But Where Are You Really From? / I Choose) – two incredible artists / filmmakers who have explored grief, journeys, women’s agency and familial relationships in their work amongst other themes. Alongside these chats, Radha has also drawn inspiration from Alia Syed's 'Fatima's Letter', to create a moving-image that sees the protagonist travel through the galaxy, exploring the delicate magic of different planets and communicating everything back to her mother on Earth.
In a series of letters – written on three different planets – ‘Finding Aarti’ explores the relationships between mothers and daughters, the Earth and other planets to build a dialogue reflecting on reconciliation, forgiveness and above all curiosity that try to provide an answer to what it means to live on Earth…or at least guide to you own conclusion.
