50 VOICES FROM SOUTH ASIA
Seeking a publisher...
Forthcoming work by Geetika Pathania Jain, Ph.D.: 50 Voices from South Asia.
As culture editor at India Currents, Geetika had access to some of the most influential film-makers working in the medium. These include established film-makers like Mira Nair and upcoming independent film-makers like Oscar-nominated Smriti Mundhra.
Geetika’s film reviews for India Currents draws on her deep knowledge of Bollywood and world cinema. These are collected in the book for a delightful look at the ferment and creativity of the film scene from an Indian in California.

I spent many years in higher education, mostly teaching courses on media and society. In my leisure time, I can often be found doing yoga and enjoying the great California outdoors.
