More from Kavitha: Documentary Films

Kavitha produces documentaries for the show "Fault Lines" on Al Jazeera English, and she told us that she became interested in documentary filmmaking after seeing the 2004 documentary, Control Room, about the Al Jazeera, the Arabic-language network. (It has since expanded into multiple languages, and Kavitha works for the English-language arm of the network.)

Instead of a Ted Talk, we thought it would be more interesting to share Control Room and one of the films Kavitha has produced for "Fault Lines," called Mexico's Disappeared. Please be advised that these both cover difficult topics and there are graphic images in each.

Hard-hitting look of the Iraq war, and the resulting Arab-US relations, from the eyes of an Al-Jazeera news room. Must see to believe.
