Maya will make its World Premiere at The Renegade Film Festival this March. The festival returns to the historic Strand Theatre on the Marietta Square in Atlanta, March 3-5, 2022. The program will also include a special screening of the Universal/Blumhouse, Christopher Landon and Michael Kennedy super-hit-slasher, Freaky. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast & crew.
Maya tells the story of a young woman in Pakistan, who rediscovers her traumatic childhood through the grips of jinn (demonic) possession. The film is based on true events. Writer and director K/XI explains, “Maya focuses on themes including cultural and social issues, religion, mental health and the supernatural. It also has a strong focus on the representation of women in Pakistan.”
