Ruchika Muchhala is of Indian roots though born and raised in Indonesia and Singapore. Ruchika is a documentary filmmaker and has been working in the television industry as well as independent space for the last ten years. She has worked on various projects for Crime & Investigation Channel, National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel Asia as well as assisted on independent projects such as the Academy-award winning “Born into Brothels”. In 2011, her first directional debut, “The Great Indian Marriage Bazaar” was shown at international film festivals and television channels including BBC World. The film navigates through the confusing and complex system of arranged marriages in modern-day India, and Ruchika puts herself through the test as one of the main characters. Her second documentary film, “Beyond Bollywood” will be released in 2013.

Asides from filmmaking, Ruchika has worked as an Online Manager and New Media Producer in both the corporate and not-for-profit space. Combining her passion or investigative and non-fiction storytelling and with the new media space, she has been involved as a media trainer with various community media projects in India, Indonesia and the U.S. Currently, Ruchika is pursuing her M.F.A in Design for Social Innovation at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where she is interested in creating content across multiple platforms in which effective and meaningful interactions shape the storytelling experience.

Third Kulture is the name I use to produce, strategize and direct thought-provoking and engaging non-fiction content in the television, online and independent spaces.

​The name comes from the concept of the “Third Culture Kid” - a person who defines their culture as more than just the blend of home and host cultures. For me, this is about capturing, feeling and making sense within the 'grey space' by creating engaging and innovative stories across multiple platforms. With a specialization in long-format documentary films for television and short online content, I am interested in leading Third Kulture into the innovative field of strategizing and designing transmedia stories - stories which cleverly unfold across multiple platforms and create audience engagement.
