About me

I am a documentary filmmaker and photographer, originally from India but now based in London. I studied filmmaking at the National Institute of Design (Ahmedabad) and have recently completed my MA in Global Cinemas at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London. I have worked and filmed extensively in Northeast India in the states of Assam and Meghalaya. My work is concerned with subjects that range from displacement and migration to environmentalism and sustainability.
