Download Manu Rewal's CV

Of Franco-Indian origin, I was born in Delhi in 1966 where I grew up. I studied cinema in Paris (Sorbonne) between 1985 and 1990 and in New York (NYU) in 1992. I also studied acting in Actor studio member, Blanche Salant’s atelier, in Paris (1985 to 1990).

I then returned to Delhi, created a film production company, Duniya Vision and made thirteen films on architecture between 1992 and 2002. Seven were selected in international film festivals and three:
Mandu, Lutyens’ New Delhi and Le Corbusier in India received international awards.

In 2002, I made
Hollywood ki Pukar, a 12 minute satire in “Hinglish” (English + Hindi) which was premiered in the Director’s fortnight section, in Cannes. It was one of the first films in India which used low budget digital technology.

In 2005, I made my first feature,
Chai Pani etc. another satire in “Hinglish” but had to struggle for 7 months with Indian censors before it was given a “U” (Universal) certificate. Chai Pani etc was selected in various festivals, including the Montreal World film festival and won the Special Jury Award at the Independent International film festival in Brussels in November 2007.

Till now I have written, directed and produced all my films.

Duniya Vision (India) Pvt. Ltd. is a private limited company based in New Delhi, the Indian capital. Its principal purpose is to make documentary and fiction films , with a concern for form and the ambition to promote universal values.
