‘Anu’ Available to Watch on MUBI

DEGANZ member Pulkit Arora‘s short film Anu is now available to watch on MUBI.

The film offers a unique perspective on grief, following a recent widow as she immigrates to Aotearoa and quarantines in managed isolation. Mubi describes Anu as “a tale of love from another era” and a “bittersweet portrait of companionship, mourning, and faith.”

Anu has had a successful festival run, winning the Audience and Creative Emerging Talent Awards at the New Zealand International Film Festival in 2023. It went on to screen and garner further awards at the Melbourne International Film Festival, Kaohsiung Film Festival, Bolton Film Festival, Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles, and 16 others. The short also fetched actor Prabha Ravi the Best Actor Award at the 2023 Show Me Shorts, with nominations in three other categories.

MUBI is a streaming service, curator, publisher, and distributor, providing a global platform for cinema lovers to discover ambitious films by visionary filmmakers.

When asked about the news, Pulkit shared with DEGANZ,

I’m delighted to have the film find a larger audience, but even more delighted to stop having to constantly talk about it. If you liked it, please tell other people to watch it. If you don’t like talking to other people, just rate us on Letterboxd.

It is great to see DEGANZ members’ mahi platformed on a global scale. Congratulations to Pulkit, producer Rachel Fawcett, and the rest of the team!
