More power to you Madhura!!!


This city has played host to some remarkable women, who influenced and change the way we see this city.
West Bengal is where you will find ‘change-makers’, warriors, storytellers. Women have played significant roles in its history and they are keeping up the legacy on-going.
Speaking about Cannes-2019, although no Indian movie made it to this year’s 72nd Cannes Film Festival, India’s name echoed at the French Rivera. Know why?
Kolkata-based cinematographer (DOP) Modhura Palit made India proud. Madhura became the first Indian and the first Indian woman to be chosen for the 2019 ‘Angenieux Special Encouragement’ at Cannes in the cinematography ceremony. The prize encourages aspiring cinematographers around the world.
Speaking about Madhura’s work, she has worked on three feature films, documentaries, numerous short ads and TVCs. This beautiful and talented lady is also a member of the Eastern Indian Cinematographers Association (EICA) and part of Asian Film Academy (AFA), Busan. In an interview, this beautiful lady said, “It feels quite unreal, to be honest. It feels pat on my back at the end of a good shot. All the hardship was paid off. This felicitation gave me a sense of validation. Frankly speaking, the entire struggle paid off.”
Films like ‘Paper Boy’, ‘The Girl Across the Stream’, ‘Watchmaker’, ‘Meet Sohee’ are considered to be notable and interestingly crafted by Madhura. She is breaking all the stereotypes and nailing in her game.
Madhura’s work will keep you hooked for sure:
