INDIA IN AMERICA is a series of short documentaries about the lives of Indians in America.


This series of short documentaries invites viewers to discover how Indian Americans have influenced American society, to explore how Indians maintain their religious and cultural identity in America, and to expand their vision of what it is to be an American.


STATUS UPDATE: The first short film of this series, INDIAN SUMMER, screened at DOC NYC, CAAMFest San Jose, the Hawaii International Film Festival, the New York Indian Film Festival, the NJ Independent South Asian FF, and The PBS Online Film Festival among others. The film follows a group of Indian American kids over a two-week camp session at the Hindu Heritage Summer Camp in Rochester, NY. They begin each day with yoga, learn Hindu chants, and attend philosophy classes in which they demystify the basic tenets of Hinduism, express their deep need for community, and tell us what it takes to be a Hindu in America.
