Filmmakers Zoe Malhotra and Meghna Chakraborty give you an all-access pass to Coachella 2023 by highlighting the presence of South Asian artists at the fest such as Ali Sethi, Diljit Dosanjh, Joy Crookes, Charli XCX, Jai Paul and Jai Wolf in the documentary “Ascending: South Asian Artists at Coachella 2023.”

As both Malhotra and Chakraborty say, it’s a beautiful journey “celebrating the historic moment at Coachella 2023 when six South Asian artists redefined the festival experience and global music landscape.”

I spent some time with the filmmakers to know more about the documentary and to congratulate them for being an official selection at this year’s Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films.
