Writing With Fire became the first feature documentary from India to be nominated for an Academy Award. Having broken many records along its journey – a double-winner at Sundance ’21, an IDA and PGA nomination for Best Documentary, 33 international awards and over 150 festival selections – Writing With Fire has opened up an industry-wide conversation about how far an independently produced documentary can go.
Director-Producer duo Rintu Thomas & Sushmit Ghosh will speak about their 6-year journey with the film, about authorship and representation in storytelling, how they produced an independent documentary and the challenges and opportunities of bringing this film to audiences in a hybrid year.
Both Rintu and Sushmit will be travelling from India to make this presentation in person.
