My Journey with Film

Corporate jobs promise you good money and security. A life in the arts does not promise you either of these - though if you stick with it, you may have enough. So if you are doing quite well in the corporate space, why on earth would you leave it to enter the world of the arts?

We think it might have something to do with an appetite for risk, the thrill of not knowing exactly what tomorrow brings, and a deep love affair with the creative experience from which it is extremely difficult to extricate yourself.

We are delighted to invite Sujoy Ghosh - filmmaker - to Mumbai Local share with us his journey as a filmmaker. When asked how he came into films, he says that he had a corporate job, but being in Bombay, you see everyone having a script. I just wanted to see if I could write a script. So I wrote a script to see if I could." That script was the beginning of a journey that has brought to us films like Jhankaar Beats, Ahalya, and Kahaani, films that Sujoy himself is particularly proud of as they opened doors for other filmmakers.

Join us for an evening with Sujoy where he shares with us how he learned to make films (after he decided to make one!), what has drawn him to tell certain kinds of stories, and how he thinks of audiences which allow him to make the films he does.

RSVP for this session begins on Mon 17th September 2018.

This session is curated by Sanjna Kapoor.
