Rhea Bakshi's documentary, 'India's Treasures' wins the best student film at the New York International Film Awards.

The documentary explores India's growing silver jewelry industry and brings out the challenges of artisans working with silver.

The 17-year-old's family's connection to Rajasthan inspired her to choose the topic for her documentary.

Rhea's parents encouraged her to submit the documentary for awards, even though she had no prior experience in filmmaking.

She dedicated this award to all her students at NGO 'Nai Disha,' grateful for the impact they had on the direction of her documentary.
