As Others See Us

‘As Others See Us’ was a research project conducted in partnership with the National Films Archives of India. The project was co-ordinated by Ms. Vijaya Mulay, the President of Indian Federation of Film Societies and a walking encyclopedia on world cinema. The main objective of the research was to look deeper into films on India by non-Indian filmmakers. Ms. Mulay is a personal friend of many great film makers like Malle, Betrolucci, Renoir, Attenborough and Joffe. Her emphasis was to understand why they had chosen India, how they represented India and if there was a feminist sub-text in any of these films. This research is available as a book titled From Rajahs and Yogis to Gandhi and Beyond: Images of India in International Films of the Twentieth Century, published by Seagull Books.
