Congratulations to director Dev Makhija, whose new film Oonga will premier May 3 at the New York Indian Film Festival. Produced by Speaking Tree Pictures, Oonga presents an odyssey from rural to urban India, set against a backdrop of civil strife, mining, and the commercial exploitation of the environment. There is a fair bit of myth involved as well. Dev is a member of the International Authors board of editorial advisors.
