The Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU invites its student staff to curate a film series on migration, labor, and displacement.” Abida Ali (Global Liberal Studies & Spanish, 2017) selects the first film in the series, In Between (25 min). Directed by Paromita Dhar, In Between follows four Bangladeshi immigrants—Bobby, Titli, Sattar, and Kazi—living in Madrid, Spain. Set against the culturally textured landscape of the city, the camera will find old memories, lost loves, and hope. Dhar joins us on Skype following the screening.
Director and Cinematograher Paromita Dhar graduated from University of Technology, Sydney in 2007. She holds a Masters Diploma in Film from Sydney Film School, and is the Cinematographer of the award winning documentary Project Behind the Tin Sheets. She lives in Bangalore, India.
