‘Cosmos with Venus’ tells the story of the night Eren gets an unexpected visit from Venus, the goddess of love, the night before she gets asked for her hand in marriage. A fantastical adventure through Venus’ cosmic universe, the film explores the themes of love and loss, and all the ways they can manifest in our lives.
This project was my debut as both director and writer. I wanted to create a film that embodies the spirit of what it is like to grow up in London whilst holding on to cultural traditions that are passed down through parents that have migrated from different countries. ‘Cosmos’ can also be considered a personal tribute to the women that have had a powerful presence over my life whilst growing up, and the magical feminine energy that surrounded me as I was growing up.
