Abhi Singh

About

Abhi Singh’s interest in documentary film emerges from a desire to help tell the stories of people, topics and places that are typically not well represented in media in order to expand public discourse.  He draws heavily from both his formative experiences of having grown up in India and his life now in the United States. Abhi aspires to make films that allow for a broader and more complex public dialogue.
