Roy D


An Artist & Repertoire professional and Documentary Filmmaker, Roy has been creating and managing content related to music and films since the last 10 years. After working in advertising as a copyhead and major record labels, Roy wanted to use his experience and knowledge base to make films that would convey various stories that need to be told.

It all started while uncovering tapes of documentary footage in 2007, that he had shot of amazing experiences with Iranian friends in India, that possibly sparked a new wave of creativity in him.
NAFiR is his debut directorial effort. Currently Roy's working on two other projects that would be revealed later this year in 2015.

Film synopsis: 
<p>Nima Lavafpour is a travelling musician from Iran, who has had a deep intimate relationship with India. And ever since a child, he has been visiting and re-visiting India to discover his spiritual quest. And on one such visit, he gets to re-discover a memoir.<br /> <br /> Taking us back in time (2007) when his band Nafir was a blend of traditional Persian and modern world fusion sounds of the tanboor, khamanche, daf or dafli, with a dash of nu-jazz guitar and steel flute intertwined with howling dervish chants &amp; contemporary vocal styles.<br /> <br /> This film is a musical exploration of memoirs of travels, sanguine performances, candid moments and exchange of philosophies reminding us of an age-long spiritual and cultural bond between India and Iran. For those who are following open lines of Sufism outside and beyond any pre-conceived doctrine of law or institutions.<br /> <br /> It took 8 years for the filmmaker to shape, form and mould documented evidence into a story that unwraps and explores the <i>Kadiri dervish </i>form of Sufi music (Persia) and an age-long cultural &amp; spiritual Indo-Iranian bond. This film is also a kind of a unique proposition towards building an international exchange of music and expertise between the two great nations of India and Iran, who&#39;ve left a huge cultural impact on the world...</p>
