About the Show

Welcome to a new episode of the Beyond the Studio podcast series, where we embark on a journey into the heart of the human experience through the lens of filmmaking. Just as life is a tapestry of emotions, relationships, and aspirations, cinema is a vivid reflection of our shared humanity. In each frame and narrative arc, we discover the essence of our existence—the joys, sorrows, and the eternal quest for meaning. 

Join Rajan Nazran in a conversation with the Emmy award-winning journalist and filmmaker Angad Singh as they delve into the power of storytelling. From a young age, Singh was captivated by the art of narrative, venturing into documentary filmmaking by the tender age of 13. With roots spanning continents as a child of immigrants, Singh embodies the unique blend of East and West, and this intersection of cultures has profoundly shaped his storytelling prowess.

In this episode, we explore the profound impact of storytelling on our lives, how it shapes our perceptions and the importance of preserving one’s cultural identity. As a filmmaker, Angad Singh’s mission has been to share the vibrant stories of people of Indian origin with a global audience. This conversation couldn’t be more timely in a world where identity politics and conflicts are on the rise. 

Join us as Angad Singh describes what it is like working at VICE and his ethos as we explore how the art of filmmaking not only captures the rich tapestry of the human experience but also serves as a powerful tool for enriching our lives, offering insights, and fostering connections that transcend the screen.
