An Open Letter To Kieślowski

An Open Letter To Kieślowski

2 mins 324 2 mins 324

Long back, I had left my home town.

I came to a new city.

I struggled to get settled.

I scored bad in examinations.

But I kept on watching cinema

In cheap theatres.

Then I read about cinema.

I had adda with people.


Then I joined a film school

Without any guidance

Like a directionless hungry bird.

I watched films in the festival of new city.

I watched many films at my film school too.

Then I started another phase of writings.

I wrote a script.

Peers liked it.

I wrote it because my

Subconscious told me to write.

I kept on writing henceforth.

My peers introduced you to me.

My subconscious told me to write like your films.


So, I wrote and prepared myself.

Then one fine morning I discovered

That my works are almost like yours.

But different since I belong to a different culture.

Your works hit my subconscious.

But I cannot dedicate my works to you

Since my life is intertwined with my writings!

It's like yours, but different.


Thanking you

Saibal Ray
