The panel includes Jasia Kaulbach, Nadhege Ptah and Radha Mehta
Jasia Kaulbach (@jasiaka) is a New York Emmy and Telly award-winning writer and director working in commercials and narrative. Jasia grew up an All-American runner and dancer in downtown Philadelphia, a city that David Lynch described as a place where his imagination exploded, “fantastical…beautiful, if you see it the right way”. Her passion for filmmaking was inspired by a similar desire to explore and illuminate transformation in unexpected places. Jasia immerses viewers in audio-visuals with emotion and rhythm at their core, focusing on stories with grit and big dreams. Jasia’s directing work has been featured in the New York Times, Paper Magazine, Condé Nast, Pitchfork, Fast Company, Inc. Magazine, PBS, and Buzzfeed. Jasia studied literature and performance at Amherst College and film directing in London at Met Film/Ealing Studios. She will be premiering her original scripted TV series Girls Aren’t Funny with BRIC-TV later this year.
Nadhege Ptah is a one-of-a-kind artist with a truly diverse background. As an award-winning actor, writer, producer, director, and dancer, she had the unique opportunity to experiment with various media and create a diverse portfolio of astonishing creative works across different forms of expression and platforms. Whether it’s a dance choreography, a visual project, or some of her acting work, it’s pertinent for Nadhege to tell compelling stories that depict the human condition to connect with the audience.
Her outstanding work was acknowledged and praised in her teens by The United Nations, marking the utmost importance of her artistic contribution to the world. Television audiences might recognize Nadhege due to her recent appearances as a reoccurring co-star on the SHOWTIME television series City On a Hill. Also, starring as the lead in her produced films, appearing on major networks such as CBS, PBS, ABC, NBC, and FOX, only to mention a few.
Her performances have been well received, with critical praise appearing on globally-recognized publications, including The Huffington Post, PBS.org, Backstage, Amsterdam News, and many other outlets. What makes Nadhege’s performances unique is that her work feels authentic and inspiring, with the deeper goal of portraying the human experience’s truth and exploring its depth and nuances. With every character study, she is not afraid to go deep and take it to the next level to add a more genuine flair to her roles and creative works.
Radha is a multimedia artist versed in film, painting, and music.
Her works are born out of the freedom she allows herself to capture meaningful elements that define one’s soul and essence, resulting in a visual and sound expression of their indelible inner beauty beyond their physical and visual boundaries.
As a flow artist, Radha’s ability to fully surrender and drop into a flow state allows her to break free from any logic, thinking and reasoning often required of her when she is not making art. These creative states of flow are rooted deep within her, and visually reflected in her work as she incorporates bright, lively and vibrant colors within her paintings; stories of hope and inspiration often of the underrepresented and underserved in her films; and elements of calm and meditative experiences in her music.
