Here is an a link from an Indian Newspaper:
Shaison P. Ouseph is an internationally acclaimed documentary film maker, cameraman and photographer. His many credits range from director of photography to art direction on a myriad of documentaries and independent feature projects.
His public service campaigns promote literacy, empowerment of women and action against child exploitation. They have won him many national and international accolades. Among the esteemed organizations that have bestowed awards and certificates on him for his work on social issues are the United Nations, the US Embassy, International Labour Organization and International Independent Film Awards.
Based in Mumbai, India, Shaison’s desire to work for the rights of the domestic workers and their issues has taken the form of documentary films. His videos on saving children in prostitution have been applauded by many. His commitment to making meaningful film was clearly seen with his video on the earthquake in Nepal.
He searches the world to find meaningful subjects, and his films have been appreciated by many. Films on the side effects of cancer treatment in Denmark, local classical music of Sweden, migrant issues in Australia, the Bali Spirit Festival in Indonesia and the work of a gifted healer in the United States are some of the subjects that Shaison has recently documented.
His latest films, ‘Baano’, the story of violence on women in India, and “Rescue” a heart touching story of women in Kenya, let people feel who Shaison really is. His upcoming feature film, “Sister Rani Maria,” is a true story of a Catholic nun who was murdered for empowering the tribal women and children in the remotest villages in India.
Recently, the International Independent Film Awards acknowledged his co-directed film “Playa Azul I Love You,” made with Dr. Serena Anderlini
