Goodbye by Rechna Varma

Sisters Raya and Sophie reconcile their past to define their futures after their mother’s wake.

In 2021, we partnered ARRI to launch our inaugural fellowship for bipoc creators, with the goal to empower independent filmmakers who seek out stories that reflect our increasingly diverse communities. Rechna Varma's short film GOODBYE just wrapped principal photography and is now in post production.
