Deepa Mehta has a message for Canadian filmmakers
'We don't have to emulate anybody'
"Don't try and compete with the Americans," Mehta says in this preview of her interview on The Filmmakers. "That's what I would tell Canadian filmmakers."
Mehta says we have enough stories and enough moments to celebrate that can make for wonderful cinema.
"We don't have to emulate anybody."
