Anu Malhotra

Anu Malhotra

Biography


Anu Malhotra is one of India\'s leading filmmakers, having won over 16 national and international awards. But filmmaking is not just a profession for her but a passion with a cause to create meaningful and uplifting television content.

 

Over the past decades, she has transformed the lives and minds of people across India and the world through her insightful documentaries, trendsetting television programming and revolutionary awareness campaigns that are a tribute to India and its infinite diversity.

 

In 1994, she set up AIM Television as a boutique production house and went on to create over 600 hours of quality non-fiction television programming for premier Indian television channels (Zee TV, Sony and Doordarshan), and a range of infotainment series for reputed international channels (BBC, Discovery, Travel Channel UK, France 5 et al.)

 

A pioneer of the travel show genre on Indian television, Anu Malhotra was the mastermind behind presenter-based reality format travel shows with her multiple award-winning programmes, Namaste Indiaand Indian Holiday. She successfully formatted and showcased pioneering lifestyle programming (Khubsoorat, Jhatpat Khana, Take 5, Peoples Club, Breakfast with Zee et al) which became household names and defined a whole generation of Indian audiences.

AIM Television’s global appeal was garnered with high-quality shows such as Tribal Wisdom, Yatra - Indian Travels and Holistic Healing that were aired internationally (Discovery, Travel Channel UK, France 5, et.al.)

 

With her incisive vision, she turned her experiences into captivating commercials and promotionals for the Department of Tourism to market India’s tourism potential abroad. The first series of the Incredible India films were created by her - a slogan that was coined by her and is now the signature for the Department of Tourism’s marketing programme worldwide. Simultaneously, she penned Travels With My Camera, a column for HT City in 2003, besides writing travel articles for various magazines.

 

Anu Malhotra has consulted for BBC World Service Trust as the creative head for its India Project with the specific mission of raising awareness about HIV/AIDS in India. For this campaign, she designed and directed a hugely successful and impactful ‘Behaviour Change Communication Project,’, Haath Se Haath Milaa, a 52-episodes television series involving 50 Bollywood stars. This campaign won the UNAIDS Global Award (2007).

 

Over the past decade, she has redefined the landscape of documentary cinema with her path breaking and seminal films, The Apa Tani of Arunachal Pradesh, The Konyak of Nagaland and The Maharaja of Jodhpur. Her most recent work Shamans of the Himalayas, premiered in October 2010 at Indian Habitat Centre as the opening film of a retrospective on her documentaries. And the 4x1 hour docu-series was telecast on the Discovery Channel over July 2013.

 

Previously, in 2011, Anu Malhotra showcased a multimedia photo exhibition titled Soul Survivors at Stainless Art Gallery. Inaugurated by the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, it was later relocated to the National Museum, New Delhi. This unique exhibition showcased about 80 large-size photographs taken by her during the filming of her documentary films on the North-Eastern tribes and the Tibetan plateau. This highly commended exhibition also included three documentary films, installations and collectible artifacts designed by her, and other memorabilia in which she co-opted leading designers. It has been chosen by ICCR to be exhibited internationally. The solo, Hue-Borne: Anu Malhotra’s Debut Show is being presented by Art Alive Gallery, New Delhi



Statement

An intermittent painter in the early years, she is given herself over to the power of painting for the last few years. Using an unconventional palette, the self-taught artist has created an interesting technique of layering colours to create landscapes and still-lifes that burst with colours. A bold experimentalist, she uses strong tones with rare confidence to create works that are replete with vigour and vitality. Adrenalin courses through her canvases, as though capturing the essence of her life\'s experiences. Her restless spirit finds a reflection in her paintings...and yet is difficult to pin down - a chimera moment, perhaps a cameo that provides a seductive glimpse before closing the doors on her world where the weak and anaemic has no place. For a decade now, Anu Malhotra has been painting – often secretly, or for the admiration of a few special friends, before venturing into this: her first, full-fledged exhibition that cuts across her many interests of abstract, lyrical, landscape and figurative paintings. Her debut exhibition has been in the making for three years since she started on the series, and consists of impasto and flowing paints in a vibrant chemistry of colours.

Statement

During all these years, man and life, their complex co-existence, are the central concerns of my work. I am also sometime fascinated by Nature�s organic qualities, its design and rhythmic construction. People continue to be the dominating influence in my work. For the last few years, I have been deeply disturbed with the man�s brutality upon man, in Iraq, in U.S.A., in Russia, in U.K. or in India. Religious and racial riots in Gujarat, bombing and destruction by one country on another country, terrorist attacks on helpless children in Russia, or on the innocent public in other parts of the world, torture of Iraqi prisoners in Abu Gharib Jail and political killings in the village of Bengal, or other parts of India, torture and rape of women and young girls, have all affected me deeply. This suppressed humanity makes me alert, sad and disturbed. The present turmoil has affected me as a human being and is directly reflected in my art.

Raghu Rai

Raghu Rai

Biography

Raghu Rai

Indian, b. 1942


Raghu Rai was born in the small village of Jhhang, now part of Pakistan. He took up photography in 1965, and the following year joined \"The Statesman\" newspaper as its chief photographer. Impressed by an exhibit of his work in Paris in 1971, Henri Cartier-Bresson nominated Rai to join Magnum Photos in 1977.

 

Rai left \"The Statesman\" in 1976 to work as picture editor for \"Sunday,\" a weekly news magazine published in Calcutta. He left in 1980 and worked as Picture Editor/Visualizer/Photographer of \"India Today\", India’s leading news magazine, during its formative years. From 1982 to 1991, he worked on special issues and designs, contributing trailblazing picture essays on social, political and cultural themes, many of which became the talking point of the magazine.

 

In the last 18 years, Rai has specialized in extensive coverage of India. He has produced more than 18 books, including Raghu Rai’s Delhi, The Sikhs, Calcutta, Khajuraho, Taj Mahal, Tibet in Exile, India, and Mother Teresa.

 

For Greenpeace, he has completed an in-depth documentary project on the chemical disaster at Bhopal in 1984, and on its ongoing effects on the lives of gas victims. This work resulted in a book and three exhibitions that have been touring Europe, America, India and southeast Asia since 2004, the 20th anniversary of the disaster. Rai hopes that the exhibition can support the many survivors through creating greater awareness, both about the tragedy, and about the victims – many who are still uncompensated – who continue to live in the contaminated environment around Bhopal.

 

Rai was awarded the ‘Padmashree’ in 1971, one of India’s highest civilian awards ever given to a photographer. In 1992, his National Geographic cover story “Human Management of Wildlife in India” won him widespread critical acclaim for the piece. Besides winning many national and international awards, Rai has exhibited his works in London, Paris, New York, Hamburg, Prague, Tokyo, Zurich and Sydney. His photo essays have appeared in many of the world’s leading magazines and newspapers including \"Time\", \"Life\", \"GEO\", \"The New York Times\", \"Sunday Times\", \"Newsweek\", \"The Independent,\" and the \"New Yorker\".

 

He has served three times on the jury of the World Press Photo and twice on the jury of UNESCO\'s International Photo Contest.

He held his first international one- man exhibition at the age of ten, in New York.

He also began to delve deeper into the various environmental issues concerning Sri Lanka. Of them, he was particularly bothered by the rapidly decreasing plight of the rain forests, and his present series of works are an attempt to engage the audiences by making them aware of this pertinent situation.

Senaka’s work has been shown at most parts of Europe and South Asia with critical acclaim. Till date he has more than 100 solo shows to his credit, and numerous group shows in the countries of Europe, China, Australia, Japan, Singapore, Czechoslovakia, Korea and Egypt to name a few.
