KALBELIYA the dance of freedom (2021)

Official Website


The story of a tribe of nomadic gypsy women who embraced the dance of the serpent to break free from the antiquated systems of casteism, patriarchy, and female infanticide, to take the future of their girls and young women into their own hands, empowering not only themselves but women from all over the world through their craft- a sensual desert dance.

THE LANGUAGE THEY SPOKE (2019)


A great deal of contemporary society has a very unhealthy relationship with silence. People fear silence more than anything else, often rushing to fill the space with meaningless entities so that they are no longer uncomfortable.
Eastern traditions of Tao, Tantra and Zen Buddhism highly revere mauna, or silence, as the Language of Gods, the living force leading to the peaceful unmoving state of self. This poetic film invites you to find repose in this instrument of discomfort.
