Nagendra Karri, born in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, who is a computer expert, went to the US to specialise in system security and finance. However, he was drawn towards filmmaking.
Karri quit his California-based job of a financial analyst two years ago and shifted to New York to launch his production house Eternal Mind Productions. His first film “Where Are You Sophia?”, a psychological thriller, was screened at Cannes and won critical acclaim.
“Where Are You Sophia?”, slated for release on August 14 in India, has already been screened at Tribeca Film, in New York City, a platform for new artistes, and the recently concluded 62nd Cannes Film Festival.
