Through topics such as, “Talk about her life as a filmmaker living in different places,” and “Living between worlds,” participants will be able to take a look at director Mira Nair’s life and films.

Master class with Mira Nair will take place online for about an hour on October 22nd (Thu) from 11pm KST with the 25th Busan International Film Festival selection directors and filmmakers.
