is pitched from the perspective of the perpetrators Top News Filmmaker Deepa Mehta on being a transnational artist why her new film based on the December 16 Delhi gang rape incident is pitched from the perspective of the perpetrators and why she is opposed to censorship You have tried to reimagine the lives of the six men involved in the Delhi gang-rape incident of December 16 2012 in your film Anatomy of Violence Why did you choose to look at it from their perspective I was in Delhi in 2012 when the event happened and like others was haunted by the horrors of the attack and by the young woman’s death My producing partner David Hamilton and I began to research and I planned to write a screenplay inspired by but not based upon these events backed by Maven Pictures Maven was initially interested in the victim’s story but after long conversations they became intrigued by my idea of shifting the focus to the rapists and by my desire to not re-victimise the victim or cause more grief to her family My curiosity about what could possibly cause these six young men to perpetuate the brutal violence played a huge part in the project After all no one becomes who they are in isolation What has been the toughest part of making this documentary Anatomy of Violence is not a documentary although I understand why you would think that It does feel hyper-real It is a dramatisation It mixes fact and fiction in an improvised exploration of the events leading up to and following the notorious gang rape of a young woman The film also imagines the nature of the woman’s life her family hopes and dreams What I found most useful in making Anatomy of Violence was my experience in directing scripted movies and working with actors helping them shape scenes and discover what is inside and underneath the words I could not have made a film as unscripted and improvisational as this one without that The toughest part of making this film was the editing process It was a massive task to shape all the raw material into a coherent and moving story Tell us about the filming process I reached out to theatre director Neelam Mansingh Chowdhry and arrived in Chandigarh a year ago for a script workshop The actors in Chandigarh recommended by Neelam from her group were asked to create scenes imagining the rapists’ backgrounds from five perspectives: from childhood; from the most traumatic moment in their lives; from the relationship with their families; from their jobs; from their friendships All of these scenes were to get us right up to the attack — to the moment when the young woman gets into the bus I never planned to show the attack After the first day I had an epiphany — the dramatic scenes that these actors created using the most essential but rarely used tool of our trade: an original imagination I found myself directing the camera irresistibly drawn into the scenes as the actors created them and needing to capture them cinematically before they disappeared I wanted to capture the rawness of what was being enacted: an immediacy that reflected their fractured lives What was your next step We transformed overnight into a tiny guerrilla movie crew borrowing props finding locations on the run and getting the assistance of people on the streets After 18 days of shooting in Chandigarh we moved to Delhi for the part of the story about the fictionalised woman victim and her fiancé These scenes were less improvised; I had a precise idea of how to reveal imaginary glimpses into her life And I imagined the last scene of the movie — the interview with Bittu one of the condemned rapists/killers Somehow we needed to get into their heads after the trial and in jail The subjects you have worked with in your films have been varied How do you decide on them It’s pretty instinctive If I am drawn to the existing material or if it’s something I want to learn more about I start working on it There are of course many dead ends along the way But then some of the stories or characters stick with me Then David and I figure out how to get it made Each film has a different impetus and a very different production path Each film has a different impetus and a very different production path Patriarchy has been a recurring theme in your films… Many of my films centre around women characters who are involved in all kind of struggles This was not a plan but when I look back — there it is While exploring women’s lives the characters usually come up against ‘patriarchy’ It’s just there so often in the way diminishing women’s lives and potential everywhere in the world I am interested in looking at the issues that my characters in Anatomy of Violence face: the dehumanisation of bottomless poverty the rage of hopelessness political paralysis sexual and family violence and yes gender inequality caused by patriarchy On several occasions you have run into trouble over your films What do you feel about these controversies We never set out to cause controversy I don’t really like my films to be only referred to as ‘controversial’ That for me can reduce their value and their artistry I am a devoted believer in freedom of speech and am opposed to censorship If the subjects in some of our films upset certain factions or individuals that’s a side effect of looking at volatile subjects Sometimes cultures and governments are highly sensitive I am always hopeful that the larger messages of humanity will prevail But yes there have been rough times — the troubles with Water; Midnight’s Children which was also shot in Sri Lanka ran into political intrigue; public screenings of Fire were jeopardised I have learned to not get dragged down by the accusations and attacks I have had to grow a fairly thick skin Some of your films have been literary adaptations Do you approach such projects differently This depends on the novel and the involvement of the author Earth is based on Pakistani writer Bapsi Sidhwa’s remarkable novel Cracking India which has a rock-solid narrative I wrote the screenplay relatively quickly and Bapsi was a wonderfully insightful advisor The renowned Canadian author Carol Shields writes enjoyable clever novels and I adapted her Republic of Love pretty much on my own with her approval The biggest challenge of course was Salman Rushdie’s vast roomy and famous Midnight’s Children He did the heavy lifting with lots of back and forth with me The final screenplay is primarily his Did you expect Midnight’s Children to receive a wider response I am happy with the way Midnight’s Children has gone on to have a widespread and growing life in DVDs at festivals and literary events on TV online in all sorts of unexpected and gratifying ways Movies have afterlives that are often surprising and this one lives on for many people Do you take critics seriously Well my response to reviews really fluctuates I do not seek out all of them but I don’t avoid them either Sometimes I learn things from reviews and rethink some of the choices I made or look at my movies more dispassionately Do you plan to make a mass entertainer Bollywood/Hollywood (2002) was an exuberant and re-energising experience for all of us David and I were reeling after the shutdown of Water and we managed to get this made relatively quickly before remounting Water It was a great boost and also a box-office success I would like to make another comedy Your films have always dealt with social issues Do you believe that filmmakers should shoulder the responsibility of being the voice of the society This is such an important and interesting question I have thought about this a lot I would never say that it is an artist’s responsibility to be the voice of their society Not all artists are able to do that or want to do that However I do feel a growing responsibility for what my work says about the world and how it might help affect change or at least encourage conversations For example in Anatomy of Violence we wanted to give the audience a glimpse of the imagined and even tragic lives of the rapists so viewers could examine the complicity of a society that breeds such individuals Even though you shifted to Canada more than three decades ago most of your films are rooted in India About half my films are set in Canada and the other in India I am rooted now in Canada but many of my lifelong interests are in India I straddle both worlds I have been described as a ‘transnational artist’ and I like that Till recently Anatomy of Violence didn’t have a distributor Have you found one We did not expect this film to be handled by conventional distributors in north America or India It will have many kinds of screenings community events online exposure and alternative ways to be distributed seen and discussed Why do you think the number of women directors has not grown as it should have At the recent Toronto International Film Festival a record-breaking 30 per cent of all films screened were by women directors It was only 20 percent two years ago Of the 20 high-profile Gala film screenings at Toronto an all-time high of seven films were by women We all know how hard it has been for women directors to find success and to be entrusted with larger movies — there remain entrenched barriers and biases to overcome What’s on your directorial wishlist My great friend and distributor Hussain Amarshi and I have been talking about a movie about the Komagata Maru debacle (the failed 1914 voyage from Hong Kong to Canada) for over 10 years We have piles of notes partial drafts photos plans and ideas But I am most excited about adapting Naresh Fernandes’s Taj Mahal Foxtrot for Bob Ezrin and the big screen Both projects present exciting challenges and possibilities For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Ashok Parthasarathi | Published: September 5 2011 1:06 am Related News Towards the conclusion of the Indo-US nuclear deal in 2008the Indian government issued letters of intent to the USFrench and Russian governments for their companies to sell 10000 MW capacity of reactors to the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) over a period of time to be negotiated The government of India (GoI) also allocated sites for those foreign companies to set up their reactors It is as a result of the above process that Russia was to set up four more 1000 MW power plants at Koodankulam (where two such plants have been under construction for the entire past decadeone is to be commissioned this year and the other in 2012) and four additional Russian reactors of the same capacity are to be set up in Haripur in Bengal Similarlysix 1650 MW reactors made by the French firm Areva are to be set up at Jaitapur in Maharastrastarting with two that will be operational by 2017-2018 As for the 1000 MW reactors made by US firms Westinghouse and the US-Japan joint venture GE-Hitachiall that has been agreed so far is that they will be set up in Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh No specific sites have been decided on as yet And thereby hangs the following tale Westinghouse is owned 100 per cent by the Japanese firm Toshiba and in the GE-Hitachi joint venture60 per cent is owned by Hitachi Under Japanese lawsuch firms with majority Japanese equity can sell their reactors only to countries that have signed a bilateral nuclear cooperation agreement with the Japanese governmentand after that agreement has been ratified by the Japanese parliament Accordinglythe GoI and the Japanese government have been negotiating for the last 18 months towards a bilateral nuclear cooperation agreement As many as four rounds have been heldbut practically no progress has been made Why Basicallyit is because of Japans long standing anti-nuclear position (despite itself having set up 53 civilian nuclear power reactors)that any country with whom Japan signs a bilateral nuclear cooperation agreement must have signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the Comprehensive (Nuclear) Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) It has been Indias strong and longstanding national policy not to sign either of those treaties A consequence of this fundamental disagreement has been that the Japanese government has now indicated that it is suspending negotiations with the GoI This is a very serious development for the US because it means both its nuclear reactor manufacturersWestinghouse and Hitachi-GEcannot get a slice of the potential $150 billion Indian nuclear reactor marketwhile its competitorsRussia and Francesteam ahead Who is going to cut this Gordian knotand how That is the multi-million dollar question It is ironic that while American nuclear reactor suppliersthat isthose operating from US soil like Westinghouse and GE-Hitachiare unable to ship reactors to Indiathe US government is pressing the GoI to amend our civil nuclear liability law to give US reactor suppliers a level playing field vis-à-vis their French and Russian counterparts When the US government is confronted by GoI with the fact that both the French and Russian governments and their companies have clearly informed GoI that they have no difficulty whatsoever with our liability act and do not require GoI to ratify the international Convention on Supplementary Compensation (CSC) (which GOI has already signed)and the US government alone is pressing GoI to undertake such ratificationthe US has no answer When GoI reminds the US government that even if it were to ratify the CSCthe lack of a bilateral nuclear cooperation agreement with the Japanese government would continue to prevent the sales of nuclear reactors by Westinghouse and GE-Hitachithe US government has even less of an answer It is time the GoI put the US government in
