Shetu Modi’s latest short film The Pits is currently screening at festivals across the world.

At 13, Dhruvi is appalled to learn the Indian food she eats every day makes her armpits smell funny. Her struggle with pungent food and bold spices resurfaces years later, when she’s drawn to a fellow South Asian student in university.

The Canadian dramedy was a semi-finalist in the Women and Hollywood first-time female filmmakers contest. It also won the Narrative Short Audience Award at the Austin Asian American Film Festival.
