“Olu” (She) is the tale of a Gypsy girl who mysteriously survives under the Kerala backwaters where she has been sunk by her rapists.
Only during full moon nights, can she see the world above water. It is on such a night that she happens to ‘meet’ Vasu, a young untalented painter, rowing his boat.
Out of love, she empowers him to create paintings that will change his life. But their contrasting inner visions of love may remain unbridgeable.
Shaji N. Karun started his career as the cinematographer for over 40 films by the master Aravindan. His first three feature films as a director have all been selected in Cannes: Piravi (Camera d’Or Special Mention), Swaham (Competition), and Vanaprastham (Un Certain Regard).
