Indrani Nayar-Gall is a multimedia artist. Indrani acquired MFA from Visva Bharati University, and an Advance Graduate Certificate in contemporary safe printmaking from Rochester Institute of Technology. With a diploma in education from the University of West Indies, Indrani began her professional career in teaching and art practice in Barbados. After moving to the U.S., she taught part-time at universities and focused on her socially engaged art practice. Indrani’s interest working with film media started with short experimental pieces and grew into documentary film to bring greater visibility to the stories of misogyny and abuse of women and young girls.

String of Stories, her new narrative-style feature documentary, was completed in 2021.
