Igniting fires and combining worlds – with film director Ravinol Chambers

Interview podcast - Ravinol Chambers

Video is like a match which starts the fire to cook a meal, says Ravinol Chambers. He’s worked with numerous social enterprises, social investors and partners such as TedX London, making stories which cross boundaries since 2009.

Ravinol’s debut documentary Road to Vrindavan is a feature film examining the impact and importance of education for girls in India and what we must all do to make progress in gender equity.

Ravinol tells us more about this ‘heartbreaking yet incredibly hopeful’ film, and the personal journey to make it. This episode also covers his life for seven years as a monk, why he started Be Inspired Films (one of the UK’s founding B Corps), and what makes film such a powerful and visceral medium (but what it shouldn’t be used for).
