Curt Jaimungal The Trinidad-born director-cum-podcaster Curl Jaimungal got passionate about filmmaking while studying mathematical physics (no less!) at the University of Toronto; he was one of the founders of a popular campus screenwriting club. His directorial debut occured at the ripe old age of 26. "I’m Okay" is a dramedy about depression, suicidal thoughts, and getting over a hard break-up. Working on the movie was a chance for Curl to learn more than just the tricks of the trade; he became deeply interested in such fields as psychology and philosophy. In fact, in the wake of the film's release, he founded a film incubator in Toronto where filmmakers can, among other things, get help in overcoming psychological problems related to the process of creating a movie. Continuing with this unique mission, Curt now hosts his own podcast, which also deals with different fields' philosophical underpinnings. Listen to him and his guests right here on Padverb!
