AMMACHI Labs hosted a special guest lecture and film screening with filmmaker, producer and influencer, Andrew Garton. Prof. Garton is an adjunct Industry Fellow, Media and Communication at the Swinburne University of Technology in Australia. He has a background in community access video and broadcasting and is very committed to documenting social issues by capturing real people’s stories through film. His documentary, “Ocean In a Drop” about the impact of broadband internet in rural India resonated with many at AMMACHI Labs. Our team shared experiences in the villages with ICT and technology. Prof. Garton also visited Sadivayal village and was touched by the experience and spent time getting to know the various women’s empowerment projects through Zonal lead Sivaprasad. Prof. Garton was in India screening his film at the Australian High Commission and the Chennai Film Festival.
