We sit down with Perth teenager Radheya Jegatheva who is an upcoming writer, director, and animator of short films in Australia.

At the age of 18, his short film ‘iRony’ has catapulted his career on an international level by being selected for 168 film festivals around the world and has won 74 awards so far. The short film which is about the disturbing influence of social media and the rise of technology has also won the chance for Radheya to visit Pixar animation studios on a 3-day private tour later this year. We discuss his background into film and how he created ‘iRony’, as well as chatting about his Dad’s hysterics and his plans for the future.

For those in Perth, you can catch ‘iRony’ being screened at the upcoming Revelation Film Festival on the 9th, 10th and 12th July at Luna Leederville Cinemas and on the 14th of July at Luna SX. Details for more information can be found at:
