I am new to this forum. Just came to New York City after finishing my
MA in documentary filmmaking from the Documentary Institute,
University of Florida. I am originally from Mumbai, India, and had
worked in mutual funds industry for three years before I came to the
U.S. for school.
I am interested in making social issues documentaries concerning
immigrants, minority communities, India, etc. I am currently working
with Carrier Productions, New York, for their documentary film on
While at school, I had made a 25-min documentary, "Tell Me a Story."
The film witnesses an unusual friendship between an oral historian and
her 84-year-old Japanese patient, as the historian helps her patient
overcome severe depression by sharing memories. Shot in cinema-verite
style, I have been able to capture their relationship since the
beginning. Right now I am also busy marketing the film and need
advice on film festivals and stuff.
If there is an informal get together of doc filmmakers in New York
City, I would like to be screen my film and get feedback.
