Episode 49: Dreamline with Harshith Kotni

The Fremont Podcast

11-11-2022 • 52 mins

Perhaps more than any other city in the Bay Area, Fremont has a vast diversity among her people. Fremont seems to have more first generation families that have moved here from other countries than most cities around. This means that there are many children who live in homes with parents and older family members who have customs and traditions born out of another world than the one that these young children grow up in. What is that life like? This is the topic of discussion in the conversation that we have in this episode of the podcast.

Harshith Kotni grew up in Fremont, but his parents grew up in India. The culture and traditions that matter so much to Harshith's parents often appear to be simply talk and shadows for Harshith and so many others who have had similar experiences in our city. It is a challenge for all of these children to discover the value of these traditions.  In a journey of discovery, Harshith  is using his passion and skills to create a film that explores this experience.

Harshith is a film student in New York at NYU. His passion is to tell people's stories. He has a love for the city that he grew up in, Fremont, CA. And he has committed his time and talent to telling the stories of places and people that matter here in Fremont including that of the Cloverleaf Bowling alley. But the story that is driving him now is the one he calls Dreamline.

Dreamline is in the middle of production and the filming and editing for much of it are still to come. Dreamline is a story that could be told over and over again here in our city. It will resonate with many both young and old.

Dreamline can use your support. Please consider how you might give to make this film a reality. Here is the website where you can donate and learn more. And here is the Instagram where you can follow the progress. The pitch video here is inspiring as well.
