Kum-Kum Bhavnani
Kum-Kum Bhavnani (Producer and Director) is a scholar, writer, and cultural critic. Her family migrated to England from India in 1958. Bhavnani was politically active in the U.K., working on anti-racist and international issues, combined with feminist and trades union issues. Through that involvement, she worked with television and radio production as well as street theatre.

After the airing of Resist and Survive (February 1983: Channel 4), she was offered a contract with Granada Television. By the time she was thirty, Kum-Kum had worked in Polytechnics, as an educational psychologist and at the Open University, where she also worked with the BBC's Education Department.

In 1983 she became a student at King's College at Cambridge University to fulfill her curiosity about working class youth in Britain, which resulted in her first book, Talking Politics. She was an International Observer in the 1994 elections in South Africa and an invited participant at the World Conference against Racism in Durban in 2001.

Bhavnani is now a professor of sociology at the University of California Santa Barbara.
