Personal Quote:

The first time I made magic was a moment when we were shooting 'Water'. It's where the little girl gives her 'ladoo', a sugary sweet, to the older woman and she watches her eat it. It was the expression on the little girl's face of - in a way she wanted it so much. There was the greed of the child as well as the acceptance that maybe it was the right thing to do. See more »
