Filmmaker Tanuja Chandra’s debut documentary, Aunty Sudha Aunty Radha, has been screened at the Madrid International Film Festival, where it was nominated in the Best Foreign Language Documentary and Best Director categories. 

The film follows Tanuja’s aunts, aged 86 and 93. “This is a personal passion project for me,” says Tanuja, adding, “On the face of it, the film is about two old women in the autumn of their lives. But it could be said that they're in the spring of their lives! When two ladies in walkers, one of them toothless, have an infectious zest for life, this joy should be shared with the world.”

Tanuja Chandra has previously directed films like Dushman, Sangharsh, Zindaggi Rocks, Sur - The Melody Of Life, Hope and A Little Sugar, and Qarib Qarib Singlle. She recently helmed the short film, A Monsoon Date, starring Konkona Sen Sharma.
