Meera Krishnamurthy

In Bengaluru, a woman navigates her fears in the Covid-19 pandemic using a deck of Tarot cards. The cards she draws- Justice, 7 of Pentacles and Death transform her inner and outer world. The animated piece also reveals an internal conflict between logic and intuition.

Commissioned as part of the Bagri Foundation’s Chang/ce series of new animations. Available to watch exclusively on our website from 19th July until 31st October 2021.
