Sample text

DM: I usually visualize my script and the scene, and then I write it. I already know the beginning, the middle, and the end, but as far as the scenes are concerned, I have to visualize them first. People go mad when they read my scripts because there is so much detail, whether it is color, set design, or lighting. SK: That’s why I can see the reds in Fire, the browns in Earth, and the blues in Water. I had to compliment Giles (the cinematographer of the trilogy). DM: He is amazing; it is lovely to work with him.

The stress of trying to maintain something that is nonexistent and doesn’t work for you shows on a woman first, but that doesn’t mean that men aren’t victims as well. SK: That’s a very interesting way of looking at it because Indian culture is often depicted as parochial with the men in a dominant, chauvinistic position. DM: I don’t think so. I think that is naive and perhaps a bit outdated. Before Heaven on Earth, I did a documentary on the issue. SK: Is that where you gave cameras to the children of these couples?

Maybe it had something to do with the fact that at that point, I was married to a Canadian, and he had his whole family and his whole network here. So it was much easier for me. SK: Were you working in the film industry then? DM: Yeah. SK: Has Canadian film become more supportive of people from other backgrounds now? DM: They better be. SK: They nominated Water as their official entry to the Oscars. That was amazing. DM: That was pretty amazing. What it did was, I think Water changed the way Canadians looked at their own films.
