Living Arts College will be hosting an evening of film screening for celebrated Cinematographer, Lighting Designer and Producer, Aravind Ragupathi on February 25th, 2016. As an 18-year veteran with over two dozen festival wins, several feature films and independent productions to his credit, Aravind’s work has landed him in productions in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Kansas, Virginia, North Carolina and in his native India.
His extensive portfolio as a Cinematographer includes features, narratives, industrial and music videos for leading film production houses. He is an eight-time Telly Award winning Cinematographer / Producer. Hundreds of his photographs and write-ups have been published in leading magazines and newspapers in Asia and around the world.
Aravind’s interest in American history and culture motivated him to collaborate and produce compelling stories involving the American Civil War, African-American history, the Civil Rights Movement and neo-American stories. In 2015, he produced two unique projects which share a unique perspective centered on war and personal relationships.
This screening features “Sons of our Fathers”, a story of a family separated by the American Civil War. A family divided by North and South, with the consequences being devastating life-changing twists and turns. The second film, “Karma’s Shadow”, follows two young GI’s connected by war and circumstance during the Vietnam War. After the war, both men embark on different moral paths that will ultimately bind them together towards a violent outcome, where an action-packed showdown in New York City determines their ultimate fates.
Aravind collaborated with local talent and crew members who contributed to these projects. Director (Karma’s Shadow) Rob Underhill, along with Co-Producer (Sons of our Fathers) Anthony Dowling, celebrate this evening of art with friends and our community. Anyone interested in attending must RSVP to: Aravind@AravindDP.org as seating is limited to this engagement!
