Abhijit Chowdhury and Jeffrey Stanley

Drexel University‘s Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Abhijit Chowdhury screened part 1 of his 4-part feature film he’s been editing here, The Strange Life of Dhrubo, with each vignette inspired by a different world-renowned Bengali painter. After the screening, I had a blast moderating a Q&A with Abhijit. What a great turnout!

Some of his notable productions include “Manbhanjan,” “Aste Ladies,” “Turu Love,” “Johny Bonny,” and many more. His unique storytelling and captivating narratives have garnered him a loyal fan base and critical acclaim. We are honored to have Abhijit Chowdhury grace our event and share his insights with our community.
