Award-winning filmmaker Atin Mehra was born and raised in Varanasi, India and currently resides with his family in Los Angeles, CA. In 1999 Atin picked up his first camera and began taking photographs. Atin’s uncanny ability to connect with individuals from behind the lens eventually led him into filmmaking. His own struggles with abuse and discrimination in India drew him to stories of marginalized individuals and communities.
Atin lived and worked in India until 2005, when he moved to the US with his wife, Mae Thornton Mehra. In 2007 he started his own production company, Orange Kite Productions.
