Ambarien Alqadar is a filmmaker and artist. Shaped by the experience of growing up in Jamia Nagar, New Delhi, the metaphor of border-crossing is central to her creative practice. Her works explore intersections of dislocations, memory, history and collective trauma. Experiments with cinematic technologies are central to her hybrid practice between narrative, documentary and experimental forms. Ambarien studied at Jamia Millia Islamia, India and Temple University U.S. where she was a Fulbright-Nehru Fellow. She was a Mid-Atlantic Creative Arts Fellow at The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts recently and has received several prominent awards and grants. She lives between New Delhi and New York where she teaches at The Rochester Institute of Technology Film and Animation Program.
