About the book:
Over a decade in the making, this record of conversations documents the worldview of 28 leading film directors in the world’s largest film industry-from spectacular Bollywood to gritty independents to multidimensional regional cinema in the many languages of India. Tula Goenka showcases the authentic voices and vision of the filmmakers themselves, unadulterated by outside critiques, interpretations or textual analysis.

Goenka’s own hands-on knowledge of filmmaking-as-craft and the intricacies of India’s film business enhance her lively rapport with these motion picture creators. Their conversations range from individual life stories and major influences on artistic vision to twists and turns of life in the Indian film business.

Not Just Bollywood: Indian Directors Speak provides a first look behind the silver screen at the entire gamut of Indian filmmaking-not just popular Hindi cinema.
