About The Book
Conducted in the fall of 2003 and updated in 2010-11, these interviews
with leading Indian film directors document the changing Indian cinematic
landscape. Direct interviews with filmmakers are invaluable to the scholarship
of cinema because they give us their pure voices, unadulterated by outside
perspectives. The author's knowledge of the filmmaking craft, as well as the
intricacies of the Indian film business, reveal themselves through her rapport
with those she spoke with. Topics discussed during the interviews range
from their life stories and major influences on artistic vision to twists and
turns of life in the Indian film business. This volume invites the reader into
each filmmaker's unique worldview.
