VIDEO: FILMMAKER RICHARD LINKLATER ON VISUAL THINKING & FILMMAKING

Is filmmaker Richard Linklater a vivid, visual thinker? That was the question I asked him. He has some version of photographic memory shares Linklater. His mom thought something weird was going on and he got tested for it as a kid, but that visual thinking did not help him in school he says. It was not until he was in his early 20’s that he discovered films and that is when his visual thinking helped him as a filmmaker. It is a skill you should have as a filmmaker Linklater says.

This is a highlight of our longer interview with Linklater that aired on TV and is available on our YouTube channel.

If it is fall then it is time for 3rd i SF International South Asian Film Festival.  The festival celebrates its 15th anniversary Nov 9-12 in San Francisco and Nov 18 in Palo Alto. The film festival spotlights South Asian filmmakers from around the world, including films from India’s dream factory – Bollywood.

This year’s opening film is Canadian filmmaker Arshad Khan’s Abu (Father). This is a poignant and heart breaking film that spotlights migration and growing up gay in Pakistan. “Migration is the hardest thing in the world,” says Khan in the film. And, then coming out to your family is even harder he adds.. The film ” is the story of Khan’s life and the challenges of growing up a gay man in a close-knit Muslim family writes Gayle MacDonald of Globe and Mail. Khan collaborated with well-known Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta to make his film.

The center piece of this year’s festival is a live multimedia performance by musician and composer Gingger Shankar. In Nari: The Unsung Story of the Women from India’s First Family of Music  Shankar celebrates the life and work of her mother Viji Shankar and grandmother Lakshmi Shankar.The event is on 11th November at 3 pm in Castro.

The festival’s must-have Bollywood film is back this year with Om Shanti Om that celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. This is the debut film of Deepika Padukone, who is now a major Bollywood actress. The film’s over-the-top dance numbers will have you tapping your feet away.

And, if you have not seen director Amit V Masurkar’s Newton then this is your chance to catch this absorbing film. The film left me thinking the on what it takes to conduct free and fair elections in a remote village in India. Newton is India’s entry for the 2018 Oscars.
