Cover Up is an experimental mix media film about an urban Indian girl traveling through her city late at night. It gives viewers a peek into the thoughts and mentalities of a culture steeped in patriarchy and a society that demands you to hide its flaws and not let you truly express yourself, demands you to cover up.
This film was the outcome of a research project studying 'How the subconscious can be portrayed through moving image'. It was created using techniques of ghost writing and scanning quick sketches on post it notes.
