"Don't try to be like Jackie. There is only one Jackie. Study computers instead."— Jackie Chan
Timing is everything, and in a world of fizzing imagery, Basak’s films go against the pace. She has a laid-back visual tempo that stands out against the noise. Her films are elegant, reflective, sensual and ultimately powerful. By using symbolism and controlled speed she gives viewers time to process, feel and be emotionally part of the story. A rare talent and great reminder that cinema is truly in the mind.
