Postcard On 'Dhobi Ghat' From Kiran Rao

I wrote the screenplay of “Dhobi Ghat” with the idea of capturing the multiple cities within Mumbai, of getting under the layers of the city. So I armed my characters with different lenses and tools an old leica M6 still camera, an amateur video camera, a cameras and paints to be able to explore the city through their individual perspectives. These multiple formats helped me build this multiplicity of experience and perception, get varying visual textures, and also allowed me to have more film playing with different mediums!
