Himy name is Pawanjot (p-AH-v-a-n-J-OE-th) Kaur. I'm an independent journalist, freelance video producer and filmmaker.
 
I have over six years of experience working with Indian as well as international media publications including Himal Southasian, The Wire, DW, and Purpose.com.
 
I specialise in field research/reporting, production and direction. 

Currently, I'm a 
One World Media fellow directing an independent documentary film on coal-dependent communities in Jharkhand. I'm also working with multiple media clients as consulting producer and video editor. Some of my clients include, The Reporters Collective, Land Conflict Watch, Newsworthy Studio, Augeo Advisors and Socratus Foundation.

 In 2021, I was one of Earth Journalism Network's multimedia grantees selected to report on the health impacts of climate change on women in the Sundarbans. 

That same year, the Mumbai Press Club shortlisted one of my video stories for the prestigious Red Ink Awards in the TV category. My work documenting the largest Indian peasants movement in history has also been recognised by a prominent feminist publication from India. 

I have worked alongside international documentary filmmakers in various roles within a film crew. I was assistant video editor for the film Watch Over Mand field producer for the film Aazadi (Freedom). 

Before turning a freelancer, I was working with The Wire in the capacity of a  producer and correspondent. 

I'm passionate about the work I do and drawn to stories from the heart. I'm always looking forward to collaborating with like-minded journalists and documentarians, especially women who place public interest at the centre of their work.
