LAAPFF '15: Q&A for Miss India AmericaLA Asian Pacific Film Festival LA Asian Pacific Film Festival '15
I had the pleasure of moderating the Q&A for Miss India America at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival! Miss India America delivers a rarely seen coming-of-age story in which a fiercely ambitious young Indian American girl named Lily Prasad competes for the title of Miss India America. Set in the backdrop of SoCal suburbia, the film channels many rom-com elements reminiscent of many contemporary Hollywood productions while infusing traditionally Indian standards of beauty as well as culturally-specific notions of success. I feel so fortunate to have moderated this Q&A where the director, Ravi Kapoor, Writer and actress Meera Simhan, Actress Anushka Rani, Producers Megha Kadakia and Saurabh Kikani, Editor Varun Viswanath, and Sound Mixer Caleb Mose were in attendance! Check it out!
Thank you Arshad for filming this!
