FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR BIO
Chithra Jeyaram is the founder and creative director of Real Talkies. She is an award winning documentary filmmaker who feels compelled to communicate the realities of life as it unfolds, focusing on nuances that cannot be dwelled upon or deliberated in mass media. Through her films she hopes to break societal barriers, build bridges, change attitudes and take risks. Life is full of challenges and it is these challenges that validate life. Some people inhabit the stories and Chithra feels honored to share these compelling stories with the rest of the world through her films.
Chithra’s first exposure to filmmaking began in 2004 with a failed attempt to fund a film about an explosive water-sharing dispute between two southern states in India. Deeply affected by that experience, she quit a decade-long career as Physical Therapist and plunged herself into the world of filmmaking. Shortly thereafter, she received a degree in film production (Master of Fine Arts) from University of Texas in Austin, Texas.
