The story is in the telling

 

"My approach to work is collaborative, be it doing research, making films or books. I find the process as exciting and important as the work itself. I have grown to love working with communities, and sharing stories has been the greatest inspiration. Interaction with diverse communities has made me aware that everyone has a story to tell and that story is in the telling."
