Ashim Ahluwalia, Miss Lovely at Cannes

Speaking of India… Our old friend Ashim Ahluwalia who we graduated from Bard with just screened his feature film, “Miss Lovely” about Mumbai’s film industry in the 80s, at Cannes this week. Ashim was, without a doubt, the most talented guy in our film class from day one. He had an incredible eye all the way through and a killer instinct on what was next (he was the one that tried to talk me into shooting my first feature film on video instead of film back in 1996). His senior project was stunning, so beautifully shot on a little old Bolex, I still remember it to this day. Amazing. Can’t wait to see him at the Oscars one day. Ashim’s film “John And Jane” screened at the Toronto Film festival in 2005 and Berlin in 2006. The trailer for “Miss Lovely” and an old photo from our film school days below…

Ashim these days, I can’t believe we are all turning 40 this year… No idea who to credit the photo to though
