If I ask myself what excites me about a film one of the special qualities is a film made by an auteur.
Who is an auteur, an artist in the medium of cinema !
Striving to be an auteur the challenge I feel lies in presenting an originality of an experience to the audience.
How does the artist create this world. The trigger can be something unrelated to her personal universe but the deeper concerns, unique flavour, nuances should be from deep within the personal world of experience and living.
To observe and probe life around and within with sensitivity is the nature of the artist.
The integrity of an artist lies in striving to be original and true to oneself.
