Deepa Mehta: Midnight's Children is my love letter to India

Vi segnaliamo l'intervista concessa da Deepa Mehta a Screen, pubblicata oggi. Ma com'è nata l'idea della trasposizione cinematografica del celebre romanzo di Salman Rushdie? 'Over a dinner, I ventured that I would love to direct Midnight’s Children. Salman’s response was ‘done’. The enormity of what I had desired only struck me later. To say that I wanted to direct the novel was instinctive. Salman wrote the screenplay and I got to work'. (A sinistra: una scena tratta dal film).
