Dylan Mohan Gray is an award-winning Indian and Canadian filmmaker based in Mumbai. His documentary feature film "Fire in the Blood" premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and went on to enjoy the longest theatrical run of any non-fiction film in Indian cinema history.  An official selection at over 90 leading film festivals on six continents, honoured with major awards and accolades worldwide, "Fire in the Blood" changed the global conversation around access to essential medicine and prompted special screenings for senior policymakers in Washington, New Delhi, at the European Parliament, United Nations headquarters in New York and Geneva, the World Health Assembly and numerous other important fora. 

Following his very fondly-remembered time at the CEU Faculty of History, where his MA thesis “A Relief Map of History” focused on geographic dimensions of national identity in Central and Eastern Europe through a case study of Slovakia, Dylan went on to work on feature films in over two dozen countries worldwide in close collaboration with globally-acclaimed directors including Fatih Akin, Peter Greenaway, Paul Greengrass, Deepa Mehta and Mira Nair.  He has been profiled by numerous leading media outlets, including the BBC, The Guardian, The Times of India, Filmmaker Magazine and The Wall Street Journal.  Dylan founded the production company Sparkwater India in 2005, and is currently completing a film on global health and human rights commissioned by the Open Society Foundations.
