Filmmaker Talk: Nishtha Jain

    An inspirational, in-depth hour-long conversation with renowned Indian filmmaker Nishtha Jain. Moderated by writer Pamela Cohn, this talk will focus on Jain's creative credo and body of work, featuring excerpts from both The Golden Thread and earlier films. 

    Nishtha Jain’s cinema explores the political in the daily, and sheds light on the mechanisms of invisible oppression. Her films peer into the cultural constructs like privilege, cast, class, gender, and reveal their omnipresence in contemporary Indian society.

    Jain has also been working across various platforms including scripted film and virtual reality installations. Among the works to be discussed during this filmmaker talk are some of her most known documentary titles: City of Photos (2004), Lakshmi and Me (2007), and Gulabi Gang (2012).
