“I would be lying if I said my mother’s misery has never given me pleasure"
Pune, India. A love story. A tale of obsession and betrayal between mother and daughter, Tara and Antara.
Based on Avni Doshi’s Booker Prize shortlisted novel, Burnt Sugar will hone in on Antara’s art, the vessel for her obsession, where she unpicks the slippery, choking cord of memory and myth until the truth unravels.
“My art is about looking at where patterns cease to exist.”
