Jyoti Mistry is a South African artist and film professor (University of Gothenburg). Her work has previously been featured at festivals from Toronto to Durban as well as Kunsthaus Z├╝rich and non the least Berlinale 2020 where we interviewed her about her short film Cause of Death.

The film is comprised of mini-vignettes re-arranging our view on femicide previously marginalised in the historic archives. A blend of animation and found footage countering how violence against women has usually been documented for future generations.
