The highlight of the day was meeting Ashwika Kapur, Wildlife filmmaker and the youngest winner of Green Panda Award; and share snippets from “Sirocco–How A Dud Became A Stud”, the award winning documentary. Ashwika made clear that we need too, in earnest address increasing horror of climate change, and how it is appalling that several governments of the world are simply denying the impending global risk of a mammoth magnitude. Ashwika was born and raised in Kolkata. She spoke chiefly about her most popular film which is on the subject of the highly endangered kakapo birds of New Zealand. The film’s humorous tone and Sirocco’s adorable waddle instantly charmed all viewers, who were convinced by the end that this bird was indeed born to be a star. Ashwika also shared glimpses of some of the other films she has been part of, in her short yet remarkable journey as a film maker. Read more about the day:
