Assistant Professor, Film

Anjali Sundaram is a media artist and cinematographer. Before coming to Syracuse University, she taught film at the San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco State University, and Montana State University. Interested in identity and globalization, her work invokes memory, imagined futures, and pseudoscience.  

Sundaram's multimedia collaborations with the collective I, Daughter of Kong Center for Research have appeared at the Lab and Southern Exposure in San Francisco, Swing Space in New York, Co-Lab in Austin, and Galerija Miroslav Kraljevic in Zagreb, Croatia. Her fiction film and experimental work has screened at microcinemas and film festivals nationally and abroad. She has received awards from the Princess Grace Foundation and the Robin Eickman Foundation and was an artist in residence at A Ship in the Woods in Del Mar, California.

Sundaram is currently working on a short fiction film that explores the everyday life of a South Asian nanny working on the margins of Silicon Valley’s two-tiered, tech economy.
