STRIPPED (Short Film): Through simple yet effective imagery, Salian brings this sense of violation and devaluing powerfully to life.... While I wouldn't dare be dramatic enough to say that Salian gives the audience a sense of Ana's experience, the truth is that Salian doesn't worry about making us comfortable with what Ana endures.

The short film is Written, Directed & Edited by Srivinay Salian who has also penned the powerful poetry.
