R. V. Ramani was born in 1957 and is a Chennai-based filmmaker. He graduated from the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune, in 1985, specializing in cinematography. He started making independent documentaries and short films from 1990. With more than fifteen independent films to his credit, Ramani has established a unique style that is acclaimed all over the world. Although he works within the documentary form, his films offer an experience of fiction. Ramani’s works have been shown in numerous international film festivals. His retrospectives were presented at the Mumbai International Film Festival 2002, the Third Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, and DokumentART. This is a conversation held in New Delhi as a part of my M.Phil research on the post emergency independent documentary in India.
