MEET THE STORYTELLERS


 

PRIYA KUMAR

"Film & photography is my passion. It allows me to explore my creativity and lends itself as a medium though which moments can be transformed into stories. In a world immersed in visual stimulation, I believe there is no better way to showcase people, entrepreneurs and talents than through film-making. I enjoy creating works that contribute to the growth of communities and documents the stories of people from all walks of life." 

Priya follows a young Afghan man during filming for a story on his footballing journey and how it helped him resettle in Australia.

"A picture truly is 'worth a thousand words.' It has the ability to convey a spectrum of messages through a simple visual. The power of photography & film to connect people and make impacts in all spheres of life, from socio-politics to art & entertainment is why storytelling is important to me." 

Sathi sets the frame during filming for 'It Starts With Us,' an anti-domestic violence awareness video.
