Kavery Kaul is the director and producer of documentaries that have been shown in theaters and on television, in the U.S. and internationally. Born in India and brought up in the U.S., her bicultural background crosses many borders. Her films are often driven by characters who challenge assumptions about who they are.  They straddle multi-layered realities and apparent contradictions. They bridge worlds and shatter the barriers between “them”  and “us”.

Kavery’s films have been exhibited at festivals such as Telluride, London, Berlin, Sydney, in countries including Japan, India, Burkina Faso and Martinique. Susan Connors, President of the Brain Injury Association of America, calls her documentary Back Walking Forward, “a compelling story about a complex public health issue”. Her documentary Long Way from Home was lauded as a Critics’ Pick in Booklist, Time Out and Film Threat. Actress and writer Madhur Jaffrey describes it as "a complex web that asks America very basic questions about religion, diversity, tolerance, and how serious we are about any of them." Kavery’s nonfiction feature One Hand Don’t Clap was released in theaters in the U.S, Japan and Europe. Broadcast on PBS-TV, her film First Look won the Best Cultural Film Prize at the Festival of Latin-American Cinema and the Silver Prize at Italy’s Festival of Film on Art.

A graduate of Harvard, Kavery is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts awards and multiple New York State Council on the Arts grants. She is a frequent guest speaker at schools and colleges, cultural institutions and community-based groups.
