hoje vi este dvd, fantástico! vale a pena!
Ainda não tinha visto nenhum filme esta realizadora, mas é triunfante o seu trabalho.
In February this year I traveled to India to work as a camera assistant on the film Water, which was to be directed by Deepa Mehta (the third film of the trilogy after Fire and Earth). It was to be a period piece about the plight of widows in India to be made in the city of Varanasi. After many protests and threats of violence from various political/religious parties, the filming was stopped before it ever really had a chance to begin. Enclosed is an article I have written on the events and reasons as to why filming was halted.
I have worked as a camera assistant in the Australian film industry for five years. During this time, I have been involved with a number of good and bad Australian and American films. (Shine, Babe 2, Holy Smoke, Mission Impossible 2 — to list a few ). I am a film technician, not a writer, but my recent experience in India made me realize that we are extremely lucky to have the freedom of expression that we do in this country and I would like to think that the story of Water would make people ponder this for a moment. That is why I wrote it.
