Enjoy the interview with Mohen Naorem, founder of Legend Studio, a global film making company promoting independent filmmakers and talents focusing in making feature films, shorts documentaries and animation particulary focusing on making historical movies related to manipur and issues of Manipur for the global audience. He is currently working as a Director/Producer of a very interesting movie “My Japanese Niece”.
Listen to hear about his journey and preparation in making of “My Japanese Niece “, details about bonding & friendship between Japanese and Manipuri people. This movie is particularly interesting for me (and I am sure for many others in Manipur) as I have grown up hearing stories about Japanese during the war from my Father.
He also talks about why he is behind making the documentary “The Uprising”, movie “School Karusi” and other upcoming interesting historical movies of Manipur in the pipeline. Kudos to Mohen Naorem in taking these initiatives taking up projects based and related to history of Manipur. This will create a message and a great resource for everyone. Also he makes a very interesting observation that films are the only way to reach the youth of Manipur.
