Watch Lina Yadav talk about her first documentary.
Three years ago, 11 members of the Chundawat family were found dead under mysterious circumstances at their home in Burari, New Delhi. The deaths that shook the entire nation and spawned several conspiracy theories also caught the attention of director Lina Yadav (Shabd, Seared, Rajma Chawal), who chose this incident as the subject of her first documentary, House of Mysteries: Deaths of the Burari… The three-part document series – with Yadav and Anubhav Chopra as co-directors – explores the “intricate, complex and sometimes hidden mechanisms of the traditional Indian family” and includes background music by A.R. Rahman.
In this installment of the Netflix Panel Discussion Series “Decoding Documentaries,” Yadav and Tanya Bami, Director of International Originals at Netflix India, discuss the details of making such a documentary, especially for OTT, and working with Rahman.
