“JAANU” is about my nephew and his namesake, a pet bird which had been in the family for many years and was looked after by everyone. The name is symbolic of the various roles we take on in life and the crossing over of the humane and the predatory instincts in both man and animal. It’s about the subversion of violence and coming together of the finer instincts through coexistence.
