Moji Riba

The 36-year-old-filmmaker, Moji Riba, recipient of Rolex Awards for Enterprise, has been capturing the cultural richness of Arunachal Pradesh through his 35 documentaries for national television stations and for government and non-governmental organizations. He set up the Centre for Cultural Research & Documentation (CCRD) in 1997 in Itanagar with the sole aim to stretch the heritage (which he dubs as an elastic band) into the ‘future generations till it reaches the edges and snaps’, thus, increase the visibility of the isolated region and safeguard the heritage of the people of the Arunachal Pradesh.
