About Rebana

Rebana John is an Indian artist-filmmaker who grew up in Mumbai, India. She discovered filmmaking as her primary medium while studying at the Srishti School of Art, Design & Technology in Bangalore, India. Her interests lie in affect based narratives and investigating the constantly mutating position of an artist/filmmaker. Experimentation in documentary, art in public space, animation and writing, are her modus operandi. She is currently enrolled in a Post graduate programme in Film/Media Art at the Kunsthochschule für Medien/ Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Germany, where she is refining her documentary practice while reframing existing approaches and formats.
