About Eisha

Marjara first drew attention with witty, satirical "The Incredible Shrinking Woman". But it was her feature docudrama "Desperately Seeking Helen" that launched her as a groundbreaking filmmaker. The National Film Board of Canada film received the Critic’s Choice Award at the Locarno Film Festival and the Jury Prize at the München Dokumentarfilm Festival. Eisha has also written and directed award-winning German-Canadian "The Tourist" and transgender drama "House for Sale". She authored her debut novel Faerie, which received rave reviews in the Canadian and American press. "Venus", her feature dramatic comedy produced by Joe Balass, received the EDA Award for Best Female-Directed Feature Film at Whistler Film Festival, Best Feature Film at Cinequest Film Festival, at Reelout, MIX Milano and several other awards at various international festivals. She’s developing a TV family comedy "Blended" with Compass Productions and her next features, "Calorie" and adapting her novel Faerie into a feature.
