Chaitanya Tamhane is a filmmaker whose titles include ‘Court’ and most recently ‘The Disciple’, which has just been released by Netflix. Alfonso Cuarón is an Oscar-winning Mexican film director best known for ‘Roma’ and ‘Gravity’. After meeting through a mentoring scheme that resulted in Tamhane shadowing Cuarón on the set of ‘Roma’, the two have now collaborated on Tamhane’s film ‘The Disciple’, for which Cuarón is the producer. In this week’s episode Robert Bound speaks to the duo about what they have learnt from each other’s creative processes, and about ‘The Disciple’ – a film about an Indian classical singer striving to become a master of his art.
