Statement from the Director:

"This film is a wonderful example of a fruitful virtual collaboration between the director and the writer amidst Covid. I am based in Mumbai, India and the writer, Julianne Jigour is based in Los Angeles, USA. At the height of the pandemic, we collaborated to stage virtual plays on Instagram and thus discovered that one of Julianne's play scripts can be made into a beautiful film. We have never met in person but are proud and happy to present to you - 'Domestic Help'. The film is an artistic tribute to my favourite film-makers - Abbas Kiarostami, Sidney Lumet and my fellow countrymen, Satyajit Ray & Shekhar Kapur."
