Bemak is a filmmaker, artist, and educator. Her work is based in experimental and documentary film and also spans performance art and curatorial practice. She has co-directed and produced two feature documentaries on Tibetan Buddhism, as well as created 15 short experimental and documentary films that have played in numerous festivals internationally. For the past two decades, she has been engaged in a multi-layered exploration of performance and film which uses the body as a sight for socio-political inquiry, engages with text, language, and translation to open up discourse around deeply embedded colonization narratives, and commits to linking the intimate and personal with larger institutional structures. Her work draws from cinematic practice, pedagogy around ethics of representation, queer theory and lived experience, a deep commitment to a global perspective in all areas, and Buddhist philosophical frameworks and cultures. She has taught film theory and practice in India, Nepal, Kenya, Mexico, and the United States.
