Madhuja Mukherjee, PhD, studied Literature and Film at the University level, and has been formally trained in music (sitar) and informally in fine arts. She works as an artist/filmmaker/writer, and hopes to extend the boundaries between writing histories of cinema, and making films, art-installations, and comics. Madhuja has published extensively in scholarly journals and authored and edited critical books on film history. Her films, Carnival (2012, Director) and Qissa (2013, Co-writer), have been screened at international festivals, and have received prestigious awards. She has done a series of (solo) media-installations at renowned art galleries. Kangal Malsat (2013, Bengali), her first graphic-novel, became a best-seller. Madhuja developed the alternative art space TENT (theatre for experiments in new technologies), Kolkata, under the ATSA fellowship (2013-2014). In 2014, TENT launched its first ‘Little Cinema International Festival’ for experimental films and new media art. Currently she teaches in the Department of Film Studies, Jadavpur University, Kolkata and is working on her second graphic novel, which is supported by IFA, Bengaluru.
