STORYTELLERS ARE US: THE ORIGIN STORY





Ivan Ayr

Directors Anjali Menon and Ivan Ayr (Soni, Milestone) connect and chat about Ivan's work on Storytellers Are Us: The Original Story. Just like Ivan’s first film Soni that started its journey in India with Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival (India Gold, 2018), Milestone was part of our India Gold Official Selection List 2020. The curators and hosts, Smriti Kiran and Kalpana Nair saw synergies between Ivan’s approach and Anjali Menon’s work. They brought them together and the resulting conversation is a gold mine of insights.
Both of Ivan's films, Soni and Milestone are streaming on Netflix.

Chris McKay Meets Arati Kadav

We got our very own Arati Kadav (dir. Cargo) to meet the amazing director of The Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKay, whose latest The Tomorrow War is streaming on Amazon Prime Video. He shared with such spirited enthusiasm. You can see that same spirit in the film. We hope one day Chris and Arati work together.
(Thank you Amazon Prime Video for making this possible.)
