I am currently in post-production on two exciting documentary projects:
“Thought Crimes in C16 Italy: Girolamo Donzellini and his Heretical Network” (for more information click here)
“UW South Asian Studies presents: The South Asian Oral History Project Phase four – South Asian artists and performers in the Pacific Northwest.”
The culmination of six months work, here are three short documentaries I completed for my friend and colleague Jessica Bachman’s exhibit of the same title.
This exciting project explores collaboration between the USSR and India from 1954-1991 and its cultural effects.
The films each look at a different aspect of this dynamic exchange. For more information see http://www.bollywoodandbolsheviks.com
‘Bollywood Blockbusters in the USSR’ explores the popularity of Indian film in the Soviet Block.’
‘Soviet Stories in Indian Homes’ looks at the impact of Russian literary efforts in India’
‘Readers Respond’ focuses on the impact of Soviet Literature on Indian readers now residing in Seattle, Washington.
These films were shown as part of the exhibit, alongside many other oral history interviews. The exhibit was on display in Suzzallo/Allen library at the University of Washington in March 201
