Hey, I'm Harika!

Athens, Georgia

Born and raised in Hyderabad, India, I have always loved South Indian cinema. I moved to the U.S. to study film so I can tell stories about South Asian families and explore their dynamics in the context of immigration. I'm also passionate about examining womanhood and brown identity in America.
