Sheridan Welcomes Alumni Behind Netflix Series Delhi Crime
Award-winning director and Sheridan alumnus, Richie Mehta, will be back on campus October 17 for a two-hour screening and talk.
Mehta (Advanced Film and Television ’02) and his fellow alumnus and creative partner Steven Bray (Media Arts ’02), will speak to students and screen the pilot episode of Delhi Crime, a crime-drama series The Hindustan Times calls "gut-wrenching, stylishly directed and passionately performed.”
Mehta is the creator, writer and director of Delhi Crime, and Bray is an associate producer. The series, now streaming on Netflix, shines a light on one of the most infamous crimes and police investigations in India – the 2012 brutal gang rape of a 23-year-old woman and the beating of her male friend. The case sparked passionate protests and a conversation about how women around the world are protected against sexual attacks, and it paved the way for the introduction of stricter laws to protect the victim’s voice. Delhi Crime follows the police investigation into finding the men who perpetrated this crime.
Throughout his career, Mehta’s films have reflected India’s stories. He is also the writer-director of Siddharth, and director of India in a Day. Earlier this year, he received the outstanding achievement award at the London Indian Film Festival.
