In this episode I speak with Ram Devineni, an award-winning documentary filmmaker about gender equality, gender violence, Priya’s Shakti comic, storytelling, and creating art that rise above fake news and social media chatter.
Ram Devineni is a documentary filmmaker who has created a handful of renowned works of art. He produced The Russian Woodpecker, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.
His most recent film, The Karma Killings, about the Nithari serial killings is out exclusively on Netflix worldwide and hailed as “Indian’s true crime watershed moment.”
He is the creator of the interactive social-activist comic books, Priya’s Shakti and Priya’s Mirror, which received the Tribeca Film Institute New Media Fund from the Ford Foundation and supported by the World Bank, and honored by UN Women as a “gender equality champion.”
There are plenty of reasons why you should listen to Ram Devineni. Let me give the top 3:
