Larica Perera was born in Bandarawela, Sri Lanka and moved to the Philippines shortly after. At the age of six, she immigrated to Canada with her family. A graduate of Sheridan College’s Media Arts program, Larica aims to channel her passion for filmmaking into telling stories of connectivity, and how seemingly ugly moments of despair and desperation can manifest into beautiful moments of growth and understanding. Under The Supermoon is the sixth title in her short film repertoire, awarded funding via the Ontario Arts Council. Previous films include Greenwood and TIK-TIK, the latter which was awarded the Best Female Filmmaker grand prize in the 2016 My RØDE Reel Challenge.
