Where: 

The Hawai'i Community College Manono campus, Kaneikeao (Building 379-1). 

Soudhamini began her professional career assisting avant garde filmmaker Mani Kaul and since then has been working across platforms and genres making short fiction, feature length non-fiction and installation works. She has received commissions from the Government of India as well as international institutions like the ZDF, Germany and the Prince Claus Fund, Netherlands. Her works lie at the cusp of cinema and other forms of traditional and indigenous culture in South India including music, poetry, performance and ritual. She is deeply committed to understanding how technology inflects these forms in an inter-medial, non-hierarchic relation, and in discovering the aesthetic first principles cinema implicitly shares with them, both on a conceptual plane involving notions of time and space, as well as in the material registers involving body, image, resonance and today, computation.Soudhamini has a master's in English literature from the Stella Maris College, Madras and a post-graduate diploma in film direction from the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune.
