Sruti Visweswaran is a filmmaker and editor from Mumbai, India.
Her work as an editor ranges from documentary film to video art. She has worked with independent filmmakers in India as well as video artists whose work has shown at the Solomon R. Guggenhei Museum, the Kochi Muziris Biennale, and at the Chatterjee & Lal Gallery in Mumbai. Her most recent collaborations are on an ongoing documentary film on automated idols used in festival displays in India, and another 9-channel video and 16-channel sound installation in the making. Over the last two years, she has mentored students to make documentary films as part of the Social Communication Media programme at Sophia Polytechnic College.
She practices in the space that is shared between the non-fiction form and video art. Her own work The Sky Below explores video as a medium and the formal qualities it produces. A lot of her work is borne out of her interest in the intersection of video with other mediums. She finds a likeness between Impressionistic paintings and video, which greatly influences the visual quality of her filmmaking.
