"It is an honour to be recognised by Broadcast Pro ME and I'm grateful to share this with everyone, especially SAE Institute Dubai who have supported me completely on this journey," said Reshel Shah Kapoor.
"I live, breathe and teach documentary film production. I believe being able to tell a true story and show the world from someone else's perspective is one of the most powerful things I can do. God children is my third film produced that I am extremely proud of. The films that I have produced are about breaking myths and giving a voice to those who need it the most. The world resonates from being able to view reality and life from someone else's perspective and I am honoured to receive the industry recognition for this."
The award-winning film, God Children shot in India and funded by Kish Pagarani of Aum Media, boldly chronicles the life of two boys who were born with genetic and physical problems. Kapoor lets viewers enter their precarious worlds, mirrored in superstition, physical disabilities/difficulties and grinding poverty.
The film has recently been picked up by UK-based company Journeyman Pictures for distribution. The MENA-wide panel of judges had more than 130 nominations to sift through to select the contenders that made the shortlist and then declared eventual winners.
