D’souza | Published: November 2 2012 12:57 am Related News Six years after he graduated from the prestigious Tisch School of ArtsAng Lee got his first opportunity to direct Ever since he has had a formidable run with films such as Eat Drink Man WomanSense and SensibilityCrouching TigerHidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain to his credit Despite the achievementsthe Academy Award-winning filmmakers next releaseLife of Pi has left him exhausted Over a cup of masala chai a habit he picked up on the films set in Puducherry Lee tells Dipti Nagpaul-DSouza why the themes of genderfamily and sexuality run common in his films and what makes Life of Pi his toughest film till date You first read Yann Martels Life of Pi in 2001 But the screen adaptation comes more than a decade later Why A friend suggested the book to me and I introduced it to my wife and kids Life of Pi became a family event and we discussed it for days I was fascinated by the idea of a boy and tiger coexisting Life of Pi makes you re-examine the idea of god and the power of faith How do you survive nature and your own insanity when stranded in the middle of an ocean It talks of the power of the story you tell yourself As a filmmaker and storytellerLife of Pi was self-examination for me But not for one moment did I consider adapting it for the screen What made you change your mind Fox approached me to do the film I started to research the subjecttrying to find a structure and see how the story can be approached Once I was hookedit didnt matter whether anyone wanted to back the movie or not Did it take several visits to India to research and write the script I had never been to India before to meit had always been a magical land because India is where Buddhism originated AlsoI think Indians have the greatest imaginationa proof of which is the vast Indian mythology I came with David Mageethe screenplay writer I visited Pondicherry and also the library in the French part of the city to know more about Pondicherry as it was in the early 70s I visited an ashramspoke to older people who could tell me more about the place A 10-part 1969 documentary on India by Louis Malle was helpful too India in this film serves not as your homebut as an ideologyzoo means innocenceocean represents reality In the pastyou have mostly remained true to the books you have adapted What about Life of Pi It is hard to say I am always loyal to the book I altered Crouching TigerHidden Dragon because it was only a part of the series of books I was adapting With Hulkwhich is a collection of several issuesalsoI chose to address the anger and aggression I stay loyal in spirit I like to adapt a book the way it moves me; I like to spit out my own visceral response to it With Life of PiI have consolidated parts because it is very detailed You got a British man-boy choir to chant in Sanskrit as part of the background score It was composer Michael Dannas idea I had heard of a conservatory run by a swami in the hills; their voices are supposed to be heavenly But it is hard to find them and they havent sung for films before So we decided on the men and boys choir from England but it was too churchly; we couldnt have them do aaa-ooo all through So we decided to have them sing in Sanskrit How do you transcend with ease from making films that are true to your own roots to directing those that are typically American Early in my careerI was humble and would say I am just lucky But it happens time and againso I guess I am talented (laughs) I only make stories that move me When I read Brokeback Mountainthe language was removed from me I then added texture to itwhich is important so that the audience will be moved by the story When I came to the USI wasnt good at English and would just guess what people meant Now I suppose I am just very good at guessing what will move the audience Familysexuality and gender roles are common themes that run through your films There are times when I want to do a Quentin Tarantino filmwhich has violenceis naughty and all But what can I say I am attracted to these subjects I am a family man You started with writing screenplays and then directing your own scripts But that has changed Now you prefer to collaborate with writers and mostly adapt from other works I am not a good writer When I was youngno one gave me material to make films out ofso I had no choice but to write them myself (laughs) I prefer to take other work and adapt it I still writebut only to collaborate Writing is part of filmmaking Take Life of Pi for example I started writing when David and I undertook Yann Martels journey The creative juices then kicked in In my head I was still within the bookbut I was also making a movie in my head and not thinking so much about the book anymore For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express AppBy: Express News Service | Delhi | Published: February 7 2016 2:33 am Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister of Delhi- Manish Sisodia Related News Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia pitched for an increase in Delhi’s share of central taxes at a pre-budget consultation with Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Saturday Delhi deserves at least Rs 5000 crore from central taxes every year said Sisodia while presenting Delhi government’s recommendations to Jaitley ahead of the Union Budget Sisodia who holds the finance portfolio in Delhi also demanded a package of Rs 4000 crore exclusively for air pollution control and to strengthen public transport To resolve the financial crisis in municipal corporations he added Delhi should get at least Rs 2000 crore as Basic and Performance Grants for local bodies similar to that of neighbouring states “Land is a valuable resource which we don’t have We don’t control land use We don’t have share in central taxes Our tax base is narrow because 875% of Gross State Domestic Product is from services” he said He demanded Rs 4000 crore to buy new 5000 buses to continue with the odd-even vehicle rationing drive to curb pollution Demanding parity he said share in central taxes has remained stagnant at Rs 325 crore since 2001-02 “This will enable Delhi to get at least Rs 5000 crore per annum as share in central taxes… Excise duty on diesel vehicles may be increased because of the adverse effect on air pollution We do not want to increase VAT on diesel vehicles as it leads to opening up of opportunities geographical tax arbitrage” added Sisodia He suggested the Centre should formulate a scheme to address agrarian crisis and farmer distress on the lines of Delhi “Compensation for crop damage of Rs 50000 per hectare on the lines of Delhi model should be implemented at national level” He also said the Delhi government supports the Goods and
