In other news, I have recently returned to the US after having been in Pakistan and India for almost 2 years creating this documentary...
In March, I will be attending the Thessaloniki Intl Film Festival where the doc has also been selected to screen!
The last two years making this film were some of the most challenging...and rewarding...months of my life. I reconnected with family, friends...and put a lot of faith in strangers...and had the honor and pleasure of meeting some of South Asia's most dynamic and inspiring individuals.
The Sky Below has screened at the Rubin Museum in Manhattan with SAIFF, in Bombay with the Asia Society, in New Delhi at the India Intl Centre, and in Kathmandu at Film South Asia...where it won the BEST FILM DEBUT award. Screenings have also happened in Bangalore, Chandigarh, Patiala, Calcutta, and Amritsar.
In addition to the SANTA BARBARA INTL FILM FEST, the doc was/has been selected for: Thessaloniki FF, Big Sky FF, Vibgyor, SAIFF, Film South Asia, Kara Film Festival, Madurai FF, and IAWRTC....
