May I introduce myself  

My name is Deepti Rao. I am a filmmaker from Bangalore, India. Two years ago I came to the Netherlands to follow a Master’s degree in Art at the University of Groningen. After that I moved to Amsterdam.

I started my film career as an assistant director for large budget advertising agencies in Mumbai, India. I graduated as a writer at the Prague Film School in 2014. And since then I’ve been working on film-projects.

I see the medium of documentary film as entering the world of someone else’s world. Through an exchange of trust and acceptance, a magical experience is created for both the creator and the viewer. This attracts me in film and keeps me thinking about form and potential of film.
