Ranjeet Singh Marwa is a filmmaker living and working in Birmingham, UK. He has developed a distinctive style infused with urgency, informed by the unique qualities of his Sikh heritage.
His recent acclaimed film “The Last Goodbye” addresses the Indian phenomenon of “farmer suicide,” a tragic, all-too-common side-effect of rampant government corruption. The film gained national exposure when it aired on a UK Sikh television station, reaching millions of avid viewers.
