Anandana Kapur, Fulbright Fellow at the MIT Open Documentary Lab
Enrollment: Unlimited: No advance sign-up
Attendance: Participants welcome at individual sessions
Come attend screenings of documentary films followed by discussions on a few things that define India today – love, innovation and spies. We will also talk about approaches to documentary filmmaking, behind the scenes choices and DIY tips for those who want to make a film of their own. Anandana Kapur is an award winning filmmaker from India whose works have screened in over 35 countries. She also teaches courses on documentary practice, gender and rights based media.
The last workshop of this screening series will showcase excerpts from works in progress. A key focus will be on how documentary aesthetics can shape conversations for change. Some of the suggestions may shape the trajectory of future works!
Ps: Bring some coffee, popcorn or a friend…or two.
