Thank you to our friends at ClothRoads for the recent blog post about making THREADS. We were happy to share some behind-the-scenes stories about how the documentary was created and some of the challenges and serendipity involved. THREADS took five years to make … and the story is still continuing! The blog post also has images from the earliest stages of film production to the final version of THREADS. Thanks, as always, to Anil Advani for his photographs of Surayia Rahman and the artisans she worked with for 25 years to create exquisite embroidered nakshi kantha wall hangings.
