Kavita Joshi is an alumnus of FTII Pune, and has been working as an independent filmmaker and media trainer. Her series of five works based in Manipur deal with women's protest for justice and peace. Activists working in the grassroots have extensively used these works for awareness building. However, her concerns as a filmmaker are mostly located in the ethics of image construction for documentary. Her practice as filmmaker and teacher has been engaging with the politics of form, content and their intersection. Her work reflects her interest in the nature of time in the moving image - both within the image, and how that bears upon the emotional resonance of a film. Her films have been screened at festivals such as Dok.Leipzig, Bilbao, Dokfest Munich and MIFF Mumbai among others.
