Subha’s Back!

So glad to be welcoming Subha Das Mollick (again!) to her 2nd documentary talk to the Independent Film Circle, this time on the topic of Satyajit Ray’s documentaries. Her first session a few weeks ago was absolutely amazing.

Message me privately if you would like to join this free event, we’d love to have you.

Tagore and Whitman at ICCR Kolkata

On 4/25/19 I was in a show at ICCR (Indian Council for Cultural Relations) Kolkata performing selections from Rabindranath Tagore’s Nobel-winning “Gitanjali” poetry collection in English while my counterpart Indrani Majumder performed them in Bengali.
