Anuka is a Georgian-German filmmaker, working in sound and multimedia. Their work questions themes of displacement, translation, diaspora, gossip, bodybuilding and dysphoria. They attempt to work against ethnocentricism, in particular in terms of West Asia and the diaspora, disentangling ideas of ‘the (near) East’.
They extend and break into moments in time through a deeper exploration of sound, via an infidelity to discipline. Some of their recent work has screened as part of the Self Protection Manifesto launch at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) and the Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Fest. Anuka received a Masters in Sound Arts with Distinction from London College of Communication.
They are the founder of F(r)ictions, a London film screening night for experimental audiovisual work, which was shortlisted for the MEAD Award and runs every three months at DIY Space.
