Meghna Haldar is a new Canadian (10 years strong!) and an innovative filmmaker with a deep commitment to understand and build connections between disparate, seemingly disconnected worlds, whether it was about otherness and unbelonging in Dirt and Revival, violence against women in Bol (Speak!) or immigrant experiences in Newcomers Swim, Every Friday and Where are you Marianne?
Meghna’s lesser known works are equally meaningful: Though The Heavens Fall is a commissioned project by Justice Education Society about the social and legal history of the province of BC commemorating 100 years of the BC Court of Appeal. Used by students studying for pre-law. As well, Road Less Taken is a short documentary for BC Early Hearing Program for the purpose of supporting parents of Deaf or Hearing impaired infants and children which is distributed as part of their basic information package and has been used in conferences and such as an educational tool.
Meghna is committed to her community and shares her intelligence, thoughtfulness, humour and personal experiences through art and organization – work that is truly remarkable!
