SCREENING AT THE LOVING COMMUNITY On Saturday night, we decided to do a very special screening at the Loving Community. This place has a very interesting history.

WORKSHOP AT RAM RAHIM TEKKRO Yesterday we went to Ram Rahim Nagar for an elaborate filmmaking workshop of 4 hours with film enthusiasts who would literally translate to volunteers and teachers at the Manav Gulzar centre in the Tekkro.

Yesterday, Santosh, Rahul and I went to Manav Sadhna for a short 2-day summer camp that was being conducted for orphaned children affected by AIDS.

Teaching filmmaking to groups of grassroots communities is what my primary role was to be during my internship at MAM movies, Ahmadabad.

Story of Jyotsana Parmar (who has also started several small projects like Akshay Patra), shared by Shradha Narayanan. I looked on as she imported files to work on and set to edit on Premier Pro with the expertise of a master. ‘I simply love documentary filmmaking! It’s just so interesting no!’ she told me as […]

It’s been over 3 years, since MAM was formed. Its interesting to see how naturally our progression in terms of team-size has lowered (as opposed to increasing).
