About Aroop Dwivedi
Aroop decided to make a film based on his mother’s trials and tribulations, her loneliness, and her bravery. She was so afraid for Aroop when he first left home. He wants to show everyone the strength of their mother, something we often take for granted. Aroop hopes to use any winnings to make another film about epilepsy, a condition that should be acknowledged and destigmatized. He lost his little brother to epilepsy and wants to make it for him. He has completed the first two minutes of the film already.
