But yeah there is not a cash movie that i didn't like. No smoking is very high for me too. i think that that's one. Where a genuine. Like oddball film. And he did it like he. He just picks a genre and then masters at every time. So he's the best and if you don't like him screw this movie rules and one of the best movies i've ever seen just putting it out there it's different it's not a masala movie but it has the bones of a masala movie this. This could have been movie in the eighties right yeah. I don't think that's part of what i like about. It is that it does feel very eighties. Just could be army. Top chosen on his eighty. It could be it. Could be one of these classic actors that we like..

"When you know when you re with the plot description sorry. It shouldn't surprise as well as china. So know i mean. I think cinema has always had a global reach but why the west stop paying attention. Because if i if this podcast gets cancelled at a new co-hosts installed for him to be with you'll know it was the spooks that took me up. So all of that is to say that we're hoping to see more indian content from criterion But but by no means is the criterion stamp of approval by no means is bollywood. Or you don't need. Yeah but also it's. It's just we just appreciate that. Criterion is making these films more accessible. And i think we also we just really liked to be able to buy some really pretty blue rays. We just like selfishly. We just let us spy products. We want a really pretty blu. Ray show we want the thirty percent off to. We want review copies criterion. If you're listening you want good reviews of bollywood collection whenever it comes out hit and again like one criterion releases something. It does kind of caused like the nfl community critics film twitter. What have you film historians to kind of like take notice there's one podcast dissect like the criterion collection. What does this mean for entering the collection. And oh what what sort of things that. Their opening up and this is deeply linked to american film twitter. It's kind of yeah. So i just think it's really important to articulate. That by no means does any incident. My need you know the western white approval. It doesn't know it. They're just good movies. And if the cia kills for saying this. I'm not afraid of him. I don't know where that came from but we're going to move into discussing the films themselves So i if we're going to be discussing roy's dough big as i actually seen this one before in school right yeah. This is one of the three. Bollywood films bat. I saw in university to hindi film. It's not really bollywood yet. In the fifties. It's not really bollywood yet. That's fair and we've discussed the other two that i watched so i also saw del say and mother india now did we did the trio. I didn't see this in a film studies class though. What did you watch in. I've heard of literature. He s proletarian literature. Well i get that that makes sense. We discussed two films in my four hundred level compared literature proletarian literature course This one and Paths threepenny opera Also very good. I actually did a whole lecture presentation on the threepenny opera for that class. I got an a. The blood freighter came and brought you a nice blood freighter. So i've seen this before. And actually i used to have a copy and it has disappeared between are moving apartments It's disappeared so i was excited that this was one of the one of the films that they chose for. Mussa super fun movie right. It's a real pick. The the other films available in this kind of fire. Foam streaming collection. Our dev dos. Matt hamadi sujata an end bandini. So do because i'm in means to. Biggest of land of big is a unit of measurement. But it is from what i understand not standardized from state to state in india. Though i do would make things very complicated. I see a lot of land that he had. I do often see this translated as to vande acres would be. That's what i i'd seen figures. Yeah i think letterbox calls it. That and i was like okay. I know about two acres. That's that's where my parents places think it was released under like the cruel city or some title..

"They have every chris ally abu and like they go hard on japanese cinema. Jimmy appreciate because i mean. That's probably most of what we own. Actually this big collection samba film. If i didn't have this bollywood podcast. I would probably have a japanese movie podcast. That's on my favorite stuff. I so all that aside. I have gotten the impression over the years though. That criterion is interested in. Bali is interested in indian cinema. And so they're kind of in moments that popped up like once on twitter them saying that they'd love to get the rights to show les then anything or recently. I know that they had said someone. Involved with the company said five things. There's gonna be a box set e add like someone unveil so keep this very like secretive like i only saw today the august ones are going to be and they really play their cards close to the vest. What's going to be so someone involved in the company. I know many mathur. And i were talking about this. I think he's sent me that kind of heads up about it said that there's going to be a bollywood box set. And we haven't seen that come to fruition. We don't know like what era bollywood. It's going to be based on this. I think it's probably going to be pretty classic stuff will if they said bollywood. Then it's got to be seventies if it's hindi cinema then you know earlier possibly but there's just rumors we just have conjecture we don't know. Yeah and from what i understand. Apparently this is again. We kind of remembering what was talked about at the time like six months ago. Yes but apparently they surveyed indian film critics and filmmakers and asked what were the essential movies and they got back click not a lot lists they got back from have a lot of overlap. Because there's a bunch of different film cultures there and everyone. Everyone is going to say something from their group as well so instead of doing a bollywood box that they would do seven bucks so i have noticed that. The criterion channel does attempt to kind of fill in some of the gaps that the collection has and i also kind of. Maybe it's like testing waters for things So you know. They have put out on the channel more films from black filmmakers more films from women and now we have two collections focusing on classic hindi language film directors specifically raj kapoor at the more roy. And this really excited us because these are films that we have been wanting to see. We would like more people to engage with and this is. This is really putting these films on a platform where people who are not already familiar with bollywood or already familiar with indian cinema her going to be paying attention to stamp of approval. Exactly it gets cheers ever approval and they're now like accessible to people who might not know how to seek them out and so that really excited. I don't wanna watch her shimmer youtube video for. Yeah yeah. I really excited. And we knew that the presentation quality was going to be there and the some titles were. Were going to be good although they were so small on Dobie the ad they were like it was hard to actually pay attention but maybe like three inches long. That's certainly i think. One of the big advantages criterion collection is the the presentation the quality is just so good. The subtitles are good. And so that's why when you're exploring world cinema. It tends to be one of the places to go to. Because you know you can trust that. The movie's gonna look good and having bush subtitles so we wanted to take the time to just kind of discuss These two collections..

Raising Boys To Be Feminists

"Asked sonora. Saw what it means to have a feminist son. It means having a boy who believes the full humanity of women and girls around him who knows how to trust his mother's voice her anger her love and then extend that to other women around him and also feminism for boys in particular is about you know things like feeling their whole spectrum of human emotion feeling sad being able to cry being able to have that feminine side and then also as they grow to recognize that they can be led by women that they believe women's stories. Do you believe that you are at the center of everything are that you can sometimes follow and pass the mic or let them lead the way or get out of their reece's intrinsic and all of this right. It just has to be part of our conversations about parenting in your experience in particular raising a brown boy in america but this is not just for families of color. utah just explicitly. Teach your white boy about our world that privileges whiteness in the same way. Boys of color are taught about staying safe in that world. Yes the privileges of a white boy. If you don't do that now look at what is happening in society. Look at the insurrection on january. Six and look at the atlanta shootings and the violence against asian women's bodies by the twenty one year old. Which i think is just out of bollywood which is not to say. Oh he's just a little boy but it's just say that if we don't teach our boys that every human being matter and everyone is precious and we don't teach him how to express his anguish how to see that you just one person and you might also need to struggle for what you have and so when once you start to descend to yourself you actually going to feel like you earned something

"An indian scholar of english literature. So it's it's it's It really is kind of a mind. Bending thing to think about where he had position him in this trading off back and forth of of concepts and images and symbols between western harm movies in indian harmonies only. Sounds like one of those just twentieth century lives. You can't believe that someone did all this crazy crap and just retired to become a professor after being a spy and also to and you know kind of flirting around with hollywood a little bit and the hammer and you could almost see him becoming like a indian equivalent to shumur live france or something like he's got the kind of background to make genre famous for making lesbian horrible eleven lesbian vampire movies over and over and over again he loved that and i could see this guy doing that too. He did really get a chance to make any movies as as much as he wanted to. It seemed like that was one of his goals. It was. that's what i took. I mean he gave a lecture at ucla ucla about it was called the silver screen potential of gothic horror. Basically said you know we've all seen the vampires done frankenstein but there's so much more that could be now exploited by by by cinema and the strong application was that he was the one who could do it so he started inching his way towards writing screenplays and writing popular fiction type stuff but it never really never really took off and he knew s. T. j. right yeah. He was actually dissertation advisor. S t joshi. Yes so he also kind of brought lovecraft into the academics fair to station about lovecraft. In even more love crafting he knew personally Robert bloch lovecraft last disciple. This is this is just an amazing sort of linkage. That now that you know about it feels like explains a lot of things that happened afterwards. Like oh this guy was kind of secretly in the center of all this this horror movie scholarship and Bringing back to life. I thought that was fascinating. I i wish there was a movie about him. I don't know who i would get to play. Who would you get to direct this movie Who are we talking about. The dimiss lovely. It's lovely directed by a shame walli. Ah so he has done home. Movie called the field guide to evil so okay. So it's kind of a world horror film. Did one call d. Oh he did debt. I'd like daddy daddy which was arjun. Rampal as a gangster turned politician yet. Okay so he's got he's definitely got a feel for Seventies genres steph stan. Yeah no i think or you know we touch and could play much interest grand old grand old man of the silver screen. So this'll be kind of like him reflecting on his life and maybe have a younger guy for us. Version of world war two or something. He knew him as well. Yeah that's that's amazing What i was reading.

So i actually emailed the woman his his because she's a party planner in toronto and said i ask her about it and she said well no. It wasn't a stunt. We were chosen from many thousand people to and did they know who you were. They didn't they didn't know it was a complete because varma used to himself. Lead tours of castle dracula for his students in so going back to who he was i mean he was born into a wealthy upper caste family in what's in what's now a nepal and he his. He married a woman who was a cousin of nehru. he met with gandhi. Personally he fought in world war. Two in this is also no joke. He fought in a in a in japan japanese theater. In what's called operation dracula and he sounded like a black ops guy and he knew like yes. They were supposed to fight through thailand to attack the japanese from that side and he was he was captured him with the prisoner of war on japanese. Pow camp where he was released and then he became a diplomat in the middle east in what was then the united arab republic which is syria in egypt and became very close with the general. Who was sort of ran. The fares of state there but he also was a shakespearean actor who put on the first ever syrian macbeth. the first ever non syrian language play in syria. Which was beth. She played in whiteface merchant of venice. And in his performance of merchant of venice gumilla abdel nasser came and and pulled on stage to take a bow really ended up in canada and sorta writing about gothic novels. And he was awarded by the count dracula society of los angeles for his for his work in popularizing vampires and gothic novels. He advised on some hammer horror britain. He knew vincent. Price and christopher lee who of course played dracula and all the high hammer horror movies as well as a ceremony. Lord of the rings and and he and he died in in new york when he was on a tour but this was an absolutely fascinating character because he was so you say it's criminal to know about him because he was really a big part of the gothic revival of the one thousand nine hundred sixty s where you got shows like dark shadows about a vampire soap opera and also the new reimagining empire literature in hammer horror films and other things like that. He was a part of of that he was his scholarship in his population of these texts was part of that and then those movies were copied in india a backdrop for their horror movies as well. Is it really. Are they really been copied from the west if the guy who is partly responsible for making them happen. In britain in america was himself.

"Wasn't there a teeny channel in new york. That was kind of like the tune. The chelsea said chelsea. Beth think you might be right That was the In the early days of the public access film there. Yeah there's there's a documentary about that channels. They can't remember much about it right now. Yeah i would call a channels that you guys will call channels e. Yeah yeah yes channels. But that's i love that sort of communal appreciation of things and news opening people's minds up because in your article you talk about these these vcd's and things just amazed by the weird selection of stuff that has just kind of washed up here. I was yeah So another another touchstone that you look is these sawn booklets and what's interesting is i talked to david mukherjee of bombay hustle last month and her books all about Movies from the thirties and again one of the only extant things from These movies because the film themselves disappeared into the ether. Is these song booklets. And she's looking at you know here's a movie about how years industrializing or here's a movie about why it's important important to go to school or something and that's all well and good and then you're looking at lady killer here. Who will be the victim tonight. And the original title of the article by way was who the victim tonight but eventually changed it. I liked the title better. but that. Can you talk a little bit about this particular artifact because there's so many different languages and again that cut up aesthetic i. I think it's hilarious. The part with the tree you know it looks it. Looks like this guy is maybe enacts. He's gotta chains on abc's murdering people but it looks like fought a tree or something. You wanna talk yes so lady killer. You look at the front cover. You see a guy who is digitally covered in blood holding up a chain saw this film and the image behind him did not appear in the movie and then a woman who's pointing straight out at you saying who will be the victim tonight implying that you will be the victim tonight but the image tells me the story of a of mass murderer with a chainsaw. He's a killer of ladies right. Yeah that's what it says to me. However the the english cut are the english story is not very helpful. But when you look at the hindi story it's it's a very familiar. South asian folklore motif of haunted tree a tree that's haunted by yorkshire or some other kind of demon that demand sacrifice In gives people children. And so it's basically this story. The the tree is the evil thing not him. He's he's the one to say with images he's gonna cut down the tree and finally save everybody but is he covered in blood. Wasn't called lady killer so so when you look at the hindi and you look at the movie which you can find on youtube. It is a really big disconnect between the plot and the image. But then i thought well the image doing something to a lot of people will probably just see that image. Never see the movie and so there is a story that images telling. It's not the story of the movie but is somehow related to it. Because it's a rising from some clyde in an image is used to used to advertise..

"Yeah you wanna talk about affirmative like. There's no way that they actually kept the work like the posted that they used for the skin. It's that was just touched the garbage the next day or tow part of us to make something else but they also will use parts from other movies. So i'm looking at play to here for cutter. Knock which is definitely the skull face from Evil dead two right there I remember since that instantaneously but that might not have been as popular indian might not even mentioned in india. And it's you know it's fair game. That was one of my questions. Do who do these movies. There's one place where i mean there's an old movie monster on campus. That gets used a lot of a picture of a monster holding a white woman from the nineteen fifties. It looks like a giant gorilla. The the skull from evil dead two is used a lot. The of the image from the frighteners. The michael j. fox ghost poking out of the wall. Yeah exactly that one's used a lot as well so as i said to myself. What are these mean to people. And then i thought about the other circulation objects in india which was pirated videos. And so the people. I've talked to in india who were fans of of horror. Movies could by pretty much the ones they wanted to see in bootleg vhs and sometimes he believed vhs played for an apartment building or an apartment complex when they were just hook up a vcr to the cable instead of a cable and returned to channel three or whatever everybody in the apartment building was see. Whatever they're playing and they would make a eight hour tape with usually a softcore pornographic movie Horror movie and maybe like a norris movie or something that do start playing later at night so it wasn't what they were after getting movie where he was like a sheriff in town and he also ran the tv station. Looked it up but that that that is very familiar to me that yeah like someone would just be running movies or something all day long. And i think that kind of roles actually. That's amazing it's like it's like having a twitch stream now and it's your you know you're kind of just showing movies under the table on twitch i you know i i i have concerns about copyright mostly from my work but also some of these like these people are never going to purchase the movie. They they don't have the money they don't have the access so even getting them to see the movie. Is i think an accomplishment. Yeah i think it inspired people to make to take those images those ideas and make something uniquely indian with it which is great. Yeah i love that idea though that like you are your apartment building your your whole show navy. Everyone there he special channel that Someone down the street. Oh yeah he makes those movies. He might place one of his own every now and then..

"Can you talk a little bit about material. Culture for our listeners. Stay might not have encountered this term right. Well the first thing. I knew about indian horror. Movies was a poster that i saw when i was in india. Actually the first posters on india which caught my attention was a teenage sex comedy. Poster clearly was a was a american. Maybe french teen sex comedy. That was it was being marketed. Necessarily i had no idea. They would have such a thing right here market on a billboard and then i saw a horror movie but we're so. Where are these movies playing. Because only bollywood movies. I knew at the time being movie. Lagaan in serbia was going to see lagaan. I saw a movie called muji coach k. At the hey which was not good not a good movie but it was a long bollywood movies. Said what are these things. And i didn't never. I didn't see them until at already. Found stills from the photo from the from this from the from the set like a continuity stills that you could buy on the market and tour bazaar in mumbai posters and song booklets and at the time in the early two thousands. Vcd's we're everywhere. And i wonder abcd's but we didn't have room to put it in the book. So i started out with. It was material culture to me as i said. I didn't really think too much about it because i'm not. I stay texts really in ritual to a certain extent but i started to read about people who did work material culture and so let me think about these things in their own terms as objects. How did this object ended up in my hands. That's that's so. I started from there in started to work backwards to how these things that are meant to be. You know. Weep pasted onto a wall with can never come down they'll just be washed out by the monsoon or covered up by another poster. But i somehow had it in my hand still existing twenty years after the after the fact it wasn't built to lift that last that long but it did. Yeah we used to have a big chris three poster up there. You can't see it but we took that one down but the the poster quality even for a you know twenty. Tens movie is much different from what you would find with a western style poster. It's kind of close to news print. I'd say it is. It is newsprint and actually did some research into what these things are you know. They use very very short grains of fiber from the from the tree. So it's a pulp. It's much easier to make much cheaper to make also much more fragile. The edges crumble. If you notice that the way their store but also just because of handling the edges start to come apart. So they're not made on the heavy poster stock those are sometimes found in the in the songbook covers but for the most part. Even that is the really fin. I'm sort of kaolin clay coded same kind of the same kind of material. We get a coupon circular in america canada. So it's kinda glossy but it's also very fragile so these things are are. It's sort miraculous to have them in to see them in at that was where i started from the poster. We had like a one ton rapper. That kind of consistency. Cause dry. One but yeah. It's interesting that that is continued to be the norm like. You're looking at kind of eighties and nineties movies for these posters but even a gigantic budget. Movie like chris. Three poster quality s remained the same. But there's also A real unsteady Style to these posters..

"Was working with trauma and sort of so there is there is i think there is some precedent for this said in the introduction. You know chicago films. Critics association has named asylo one hundred twenty days of sodom When the scariest movies ever made which is about Is based on the market decides last work unfinished work but it takes place in fascist italy. And it's no there's no jump scares or anything but it is dread is a dreadful movie so we thought about horror beyond just jump scares monsters to also deal with with horrifying things. The feeling that you can get from film sure. So that's why we said. Well let's let's talk about horrors than horror and and sort of divide the book up in various sections that explore the different facets of horror indian cinema. And so that's that's kind of how things came together. And it was it did require us to kind of rethink our project because it just was not going to be enough people to write on ramsay brothers movies in these other really straightforward indie horror movies to make a book but we wanted to publish them because there was there was nowhere else to publish it. Yes you do. You get together with the sanskrit philosophy at rossa because there are different ways of being horrified and some of it is by seeing a scary skeleton or something or otherwise. It's being horrified by you. Know the world in which you live and dead bodies and stuff like that so there is a way that is being linked together through that and that's also time back into the religious philosophy so i thought made sense. It's yeah you know. Let me know. Next time. I i could probably write something to sesame mother invention and all that it made us rethink it but in rethinking. I think we came up with a really good concept to tie these things together. It's it's the horror as in apocalypse now the horror and currently seen some pretty crazy shit. So it's you know he might not have seen aware but he's definitely seeing genocide and stuff so rest you. I worked in the end for me. but so let's get to the parts that you specifically worked on. Because i thought those were really really interesting see worked on two articles for this monsters masala and materiality close encounters with hindi horror movie ephemera and they in vampire man varma the untold story of hindu. Mystic who decolonize dracula so the. The first article is on film posters and material culture..

"That film was distributed in india and that actually opened a lot of doors for my research to think about why these things are the way they are. Have you seen the this an art movie. But it circle miss lovely. Oh yeah yeah because that was a real kind of look at that sort of grimy world of how you know you're exploitation films are made and other thought that was really fascinating. We actually saw that probably before watching a ramsey brothers movie. So afterwards like okay. I've seen the artsy way of how they put these things together supposedly but when you actually see the real stuff like okay. You're not going to see any tips at all great. A decent who is one of the co editors was was a friend of the director so she pointed me to that movie and then of course they collaborated with the actor later on sacred games. So it's which i loved absolutely loved the sacred game series. Yeah there's also a good documentary. Call a was called the. I think it's called the film. Travelers that follows a film. Truck goes the rural india and shows these b and c grade movies and how they do it in the mail. they switched to a digital format. That stops working immediately like they can always find a way to fix the projectors to get them going again with you know come hell or high water but was digital equipment broke. They were just their whole business. Went under so it was. It was about how long they used film projection in those rural Traveling cinemas even though it was unwieldy heavy and broke down a lot because it actually like a lot of things in india looks fragile and rundown but kim be made to work again and again and again and again with some fixing something to be said for analogue right like this podcast even is ephemeral. Like we're putting it out there and it's getting onto people's phones but it's really just kind of living on cloud it's not actually made into celluloid or Vinyl or something I'm sure there's people probably kind of puzzling over that now that so much culture specifically this last year has been through podcasts in digital and ten years from now we're not gonna be able to access it. Yeah i mean. That is what's upgrade. That's going to happen afterwards. You can't open the podcast anymore. Exactly i mean you know if we have digital files. We can't open and they were maybe six years ago. It's just a weird kodak or something has fallen out of favor and you can't use it anymore so getting back to the book you have articles from yourself to those and and get to them but you've got one from kathleen earned all who unfortunately passed away. It sounds like you've got hugh the tricks and then auditees center. You mentioned talking about the Cities that Finding out about that kind of cottage industry of the roz films with his three or four of those. And then that's ram gopal right. I think yes. Yeah and then. I think we saw couple of his later ones. That guy kind of went out of style But then in the third part you've got to cultural horror movies which were beth watkins Who's been on the show before bethlehem. Bollywood talked about mariani which yeah. That's it certainly talking about a horrifying situation and a realistic situation. But kind of a broader view of horror films. And then morgan. Audie talking about bandit queen and Rape revenge vs which really interesting stuff. We haven't seen band queen but it has just popped up on amazon prime so we may actually be delving into that one sooner than we thought. And then alan goldberg. Talking about dave which is kind of political movie about Riots and religious rights basically between that hindus and the muslims..

"Bollywood when his guy was his main focus and and so he got interested in the way they were portrayed onscreen with these finistere black cape figures so he he wrote a little bit about it and he actually something for us here too. But beyond that. I mean there's plenty about religious themes and japanese and east asian chinese and korean and indonesian horror films will lessen harms but a very very little about religious themes in indian harfa gms. Yeah which is weird because it's not like religious themes in hindi cinema are hard to find. I mean it's you typically get it every other movie really like talking about You know. Ram and sita or krishna. Radha these come up all the time and kind of these sort of stories are often reworked and revisited. Put into different lenses. And i noticed that they often do come up in hindi horror movies to. It's just almost feel like this is super fertile ground for religious religious scholars to look at this particular film industry. Yeah i think so. That's why we were excited about the book. And that's the way the pitch we made for publishers that this is an untapped area of research and the high quality stuff on about religion film in general in india. Of course they'll earliest films are being mythological. 's and the i mean there's all sorts of things to say about that but but this was sub-genre that's been the story of this of my entire engagement within horror films as people not wanting to talk about them or or deal with them in any way dismissed them as trash ephemera and and is not a real. You know indian genre that some western ripoffs that come out here and there so it's it's suffers from kind of being critically overlooked for for a long time. Yeah even compared to hollywood or movies in bollywood. Really do get a bad rap from critics especially But i will say. I can't say i can think of maybe three that i've seen that i would consider like great works like a lot of them are not amazing. No i agree i agree. It is sometimes it's a it's a chore to get through them for me. I do get aboard with subplots that are constantly shoehorned into everything to pad out the time and make you give a romantic or a comic element to the film. So i think..

Press and Yeah read it had a good time with it. So i asked the publisher if i was able to talk to one of the editors and authors from the book and they said yes so Here's my interview with brian collins. Talking about The collection as a whole The different pieces that are in the book and specifically his two articles that he wrote so enjoy all right so I am speaking with Brian collins one of the authors of the recent collection. Bollywood horrors from bloomsbury academic How are you today brian. I'm doing well thanks. Thanks for inviting me on the show. No problem so this is a brand new book copyrighted. Twenty twenty one so you are fresh off the presses. How's it feel to get a Bollywood book published by an academic publisher. Aren't many no there's not It was a it was kind of a kind of a long slog actually over a period of four years to get the book published and it felt really good to To get everything together and and see it see it in with its covering everything you have it in my hand so yeah satisfying to get the the handful. Yeah yeah i mean you know. I had seen what the cover is going to be like. It had seen what the plates we're gonna look like on a pdf but actually having in the book and then to know that it's other. Unfortunately i would have been otherwise at the american academy of religion conference. You're talking about. The book was on the table but bloomsbury table. But of course. I wasn't these plates came really nicely to because there's what probably twelve plates in harrow. Sixteen sixteen plates of images. And we're going to get into that in a minute. Because that's kind of your big thesis these images but so if you're looking for this on the ray website. This is actually under religious studies though rather than some studies. Can you talk a little bit about that. And maybe your background in kind of scholarship. Sure well i'm a historian of religion. Who specializes in religion of ancient india. So i studied Do my phd. The university of chicago divinity school with a woman named wendy doniger who was a scholar of the epochs in the betas and also comparative religion and my interest in in in films comes from that background and then my co editors are also from a religious studies background at queens university and so we had a conference. We had a meeting american academy of religion meeting where we did a panel on religious themes in indian horror movies and we decided turn that into a book is how things got started so it started out with three religious studies scholars. Who happened to be interested in bollywood movies. Horror movies. I wanted to write something about it and And we went from there. Did you put out a call for papers saw. Was this all people at that conference. Well we put the whole panel together than proposed it so we we already had the people. I guess we had a little bit of a call for papers but it was all people that we knew who were could work on this and and then from the conference actually we. We had to solicit more essays to fill out the book because only had four. Okay four essays ago so is that a smaller literate community of people who focus on Kind of hindu scholarship but also like you know sleazy or movies. It's pretty small. Yeah i mean the one person who has done. It is another author in this stakes Hugh urban who has written about the image of the topic in.

My father was in the military initially in my mom joined but because we moved around so much every two years we were in new plays. Adaptability is easy for me. And i think that my childhood that part of my life really lent itself and let me two words being adaptable and within that. I think i had a sense of adventure. I was raised in a family that kind of pushed me to have an opinion. Even when the room didn't agree with me. Like i used to always hang out my and their friends when they had people over and you ended having conversations like things in life and my opinion would be asked and i always like i was never laughed at number shamed. That kind of gave me a sense of confidence. You know in fact my mom used to always say even if the room disagrees with you you have to have an opinion you know otherwise would you stand for and that kind of built integrity in me about.

International Students On How To Get Trough Holiday Season While Away From Family

"Well, there are more than a million international students living in the U. S. And many of them know what it's like to be away from their families for long periods of time. NPR's Briana Scott spoke to several of those students about how they manage the holiday season. Back in cattle. You ambush Cardona's home country Iran. They obviously don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but she hasn't missed a single one in the last five years. So she's been in the U. S. I'm so happy now that Thanksgiving for me is now another additional celebration. Yes, Karna is a PhD student at American University. She knows how hard it is for American students who can't see their families. That's the whole point of the holiday season getting together, but she hasn't seen her mom or older brother since 2015. I think the best thing that helped me cope with it. It's just the video call. It also helps that she has a strong network of friends in Washington, D. C that she can lean on for support. This cardinal says she knows not Every student has that benefit. Really, I was not. I didn't know what to do. And I was like completely out off everything Please. Venkatesh has had to build community away from home before. He came to America from India five years ago on a 10 Month exchange program, and he quickly found a mentor and his host father. So, when vacant Touch left the U. S after his exchange program and came back this year to attend Mesa Community College again, he was excited that his host father offered his place again. Early in March, his his father passed away after a heart attack like this. Yes, I'm going to really miss my host, Father and I gonna miss the celebration. I still have it. He had to start over find a new home. Ligature says. This, along with the stress of switching to all my classes in the spring has been difficult to manage. So he's been dealing with the stress that way. A lot of us have right. Like Welcome to play soccer. Then actually, I dance so I can put some Bollywood music any calls his family as much as possible.

You if you don't speak the language you know you might understand. You know a movie might. Have you know a pub point or thematic a team that is universal and can be appreciated across borders. And you know as we all know that. Bollywood has a habit of lifting plots from the western movies from In other internationals ma and also like you know. Hey if you liked this movie maybe you should try the bollywood version or if you like the volume inversion maybe we can watch the The original versions the american or the english words. And so i think there's there's lots of talk about and i really am you know. I'd like to also focused more on like films themselves rexes sort of the the Like the Contacts film like the story by the actors and you know stories from behind the set. I don't know a lot about that stuff. So i tend to leave. You know that part of the film about that part of the film industry to people who are more knowledgeable about it. I just want to focus on like you know what other films actually doing as pieces of art. And how are they. How are they going about doing or like achieving those goals that they have yeah. I completely agree Sometimes on i mean. I do with with politics rollovers. We do try and give some context and background. Though i think most people know it's research i do. I look like a great resource but when it comes down to it we wanted to discuss the films and doing analysis of the films themselves. And i always tell people like if you're interested in gossip go elsewhere because i i don't have time for gossip on the industry so recently when matt and i were on gone to ask a great question that i decided to steal from her and lift.

Why you chose to focus on indian cinema and bollywood. Or how how you incorporate bollywood into your podcast and why you think it's important to discuss indian sentiment because obviously you know we could all be podcasting on any films.

So i've had the pleasure of having many you know guests who love hollywood films. And who ran the podcast. So naturally they chose. You know some bollywood films. Like sharkey delaney talked about once righted prejudice. Which is not bollywood but bollywood adjacent and Utilities so i think you know it kinda comes romy like when i seek out guest for the podcast Looking for people who can provide the earthly is and things like that and bollywood just comes up and i think Like renta comedies. I think are a huge part of the bollywood industry. And i think some of the best friend accommodates have come from india and I think it's such a rich tradition of romance in by industry.

To, be talking to you welcome to skin from the couch. Thank you so much. I'm really excited to. So I was kicked out of ballet at age four. So naturally made sense that I. Did this interview with you very excited for a cer- bond over all things ballet. So we're going to start how I like to start all interviews with just skim your resume. I started bollywood thirteen years old. It was not something that I had thought possible or knew anything about a my stumbled into it was discovered at my boys and Girls Club, the local community center across the street from public. School in San Pedro California, it was there that my valley teacher taught me my first class on a basketball court and she told me I was a prodigy after an hour of working with her she ended up inviting me to train with her in her studio on full scholarship and I ended up moving. In with her and her family to be able to train lean tensely for the next three years I trained for another year and a half at a different studio. By the time, I was seventeen about four years of training. I was living in New York City dancing professionally for American Ballet Theatre I went on to dance as a quarter ballet member for seven years I was the only black woman in American ballet theatre for the first decade of my career I then went on to become the third black female soloist in their history. In in two thousand, fifteen I became the first ever black principal Ballerina. Ballet, theater now, in their eighty year history found a lot of incredible opportunities along the way amazing opportunities for endorsement deals things that you don't typically see ballet dancer getting the opportunity to do estee lauder in Saco in. Getting the chance to perform with Prince and Taylor. Swift. I've had a very diverse career adding author to it. Extremely excited that I have the opportunity to. Children's books along with other genres but I'm really excited about this upcoming book on heads. I just got the book and it's fantastic. So I'm very excited to give it to people as gifts. Obviously you've lived in the public eye now for many years and you have a lot of fans especially, it's Kim H. Q.. What is something that your fans don't know about you something we can. Google. Recipe Ah. So this is proof of this. I'm I'm probably one of the clumsy as people we recently moved into. Will me my husband bought a home and amazing designer newly renovated everything and yesterday I was enjoying my Sunday with spicy crab kind of jump Eliah and I tripped over the carpet in spilled the whole thing on our Blue Velvet Sofa and how did you have an emergency let cleaner come in and clean like deep clean. The entire thing I am very surprised you. I would. Never Clumsy. How can you be a clumsy Ballerina I think there's something that happens when you're not on stage you're not in the studio where you're so focused. So much of the time on I mean naturally I'm coordinated but I'm there's just so much focus on my body that when I'm not having to do it I feel like I just completely let go I. Think the title of Your next book should be the Clumsy Ballerina just putting that out there. Yes. Next Children's book. I WanNa talk about your childhood. This career podcast, we talked to you so many amazing female leaders at the top of their respective names and obviously so much who each of us are because of how we grew up and the mark that are our parents family structure leave on us, and that informs how we can go out into the world top. Tell us a little bit just about your childhood and what it was like growing up. Yeah I mean absolutely shaped informed how I saw the world and approached everything that I did I was born in Kansas City Missouri, which a lot of people don't really know that I was two years old when my mom left my father and took her four kids on a bus. We drove from Kansas City Missouri to southern California where that was kind of the start of my life That's pretty much in my memory. All I remember is California growing up we moved a lot my mother married two more times had to march children my. Life which is constantly in motion and it was constant. There just wasn't a lot of security and so I think that it made me into the extremely introverted girl that I was I was embarrassed about the way that we lived We didn't have a home a struggled to put food on the table. I'm mother ultimately ended up raising six children on her own, and there was just a lot of hiding things. I wanted in no way to stand out which is pretty crazy. I ended up in a field where I'm out there exposed in performing for. So many but but it was on my terms and so when I could, when I could be a part of something where I could share my voice and my experiences without speaking, it was exactly like what the doctor ordered. It was just what I what I needed as a young person in I didn't have arts in my life until I was thirteen and so it was really difficult for me to survive by the time I started dancing. We were living in a motel just constantly moving from different places whatever we could afford I think that had. I not experienced. You know just no stability a lot of abuse There were so many things that I just felt like I learned to be a survivor and I was just constantly in survival mode. So stepping into the world of ballet, it was like peace and balance and security and consistency, and it was the opposite of what my world was in. So I think that's one of the reasons I was so drawn to it as well as you know I, think a lot of people look at the ballet world and they think you know it's Mean, it is difficult to thrive and to be successful in. All the hardships I felt like if I can get through all I have in my thirteen years with the life I've been living I can get through anything so I felt like I was so prepared not only as a young person to be in in the ballet world, but also as a black woman that was probably the one thing that I really felt secure in my identity was the fact that I mother raised me with the understanding that as soon as I leave the house every morning I'm a black girl in that so I'm going to be viewed and treated in. So there was no a lack of understanding in that area. Of My identity and so I think that really served me well when I entered the very white valet worlds.

"Everyone here. Cal Tar. The author of American Premiere Pie, as well as a him Sir. Thank you. For joining us today. Thank you so much for having me. So how has it been with? With the pandemic like are you getting any writing done or has it just in chaos for you? It's yeah. It's pretty much been chaos I I I have three small kids at home. So as soon as virtual learning started, I pretty much had to stop writing for a bit. I used to write at like ten o'clock after they would sleep before the pandemic but it was my new year's resolution to not do that and to sleep better. But I'm back to staying up till one am except I'm just like staring at tiktok videos and I'm not doing anything productive because I don't know that's my stress relief right now though everyone's gotTa Cope Right. Totally get to staying up watching just whatever yeah. Today I guess before we get into our questions can you let listeners know? What the book is about. Yeah. So American as Veneer Pie is the story of Laker who is the only Indian American in her small town in Michigan and Lak- feels like she has two versions of herself. There's home Laker who loves watching Bollywood Movies and eating Indian. Food. And School AK- pins her hair over her birthmark and avoids confrontation at all costs especially when someone tease her for her culture. When a racist incident rocks lead co small town she realizes she must make a choice whether to continue to remain silent or find her voice before it's too late. So the book takes place in the Midwest and as I understand it, you also grew up in the Midwest What was your upbringing like? Yes. So it was very similar to lay Kaz I grew up in a small town in Michigan and. The only indian-american or the kid in in town but there are just a handful of us. It wasn't a very diverse town You know we had a rock thrown through our window Someone wrote put a comb in that rat's nest and permanent marker on my locker and high school. There were plenty of incidents of micro aggressions and other ing and you know very obvious racism when I was growing up. So I put a lot of that into Lak- story as well. And how did you get into writing was writing something that you've always done as a kid or was that something that? Came later in your life yeah. It was when I was in third grade, our teacher had us all right these little stories and he bound them as hardcover books and I thought it was so cool to see my name on the cover I decided right then and there that I was going to grow up and be an author somewhere around middle school that dream changed to wanting to become a bollywood screenwriter. So after college I started working as a Bollywood screenwriter would travel back and forth between Mumbai and look. And Michigan and I did that for well over a decade before before my first book, him so was published. So as a screenwriter, did you use a beat sheet for writing by chance? I do so I definitely right all my novels out with a beat cheat first, and then I outlined them I, I write my novels. right my screenplays when I'm prepping them out. So there's a lot of planning a lot of outlining use a three act structure and then I start writing the book. Do you actually follow your cheat. I do. I. So I learned screenwriting at the University of Michigan from Jim Bernstein and he is a screenwriter as well as they. Instructor there, and he sort of you know drilled into us that its structure structure structure. So I spent a long time working on the structure before I actually go to the book and so then that structure pretty much stays the same. Yeah. I was really curious about that because I studied screenwriting in college and Again, it's all about structure. It's all about having your beats there yet but a lot but a lot of the times it depended on the assignment for me I will have their there were cases where I had every single scene like outlined, and then there were scripts where I was like I have the beats but I'm probably not GonNa follow it at all. Writing is unpredictable it yeah. But that's really cool that you actually follow your beats than you have such tight structure for your books because novel writing it's it's a massive project you don't have like. 'cause like scripts are like ninety, two, hundred, ten pages, and you know there are very strict rules to to adhere to write a novel writing. It's just. It's free game. Yeah and much longer like when I first started writing books my editor on a him. So as like you know, you have to pause and take a second to describe what people are wearing and what the scenery looks like. You know because from a screenwriting background, you don't do that because there is a costume designer and there's a set decorator and there are other people to take care of all those details. So it took a bit of retraining to get get. into novel writing but I I do definitely depend heavily on the screen writing background
