With indie cinema like Lunchbox, Titli and Liar’s Dice entering the Oscars for India this year, the Indian film industry is more than Bollywood. Tula Goenka’s new book, Not Just Bollywood: Indian Directors Speak, offers a rare glimpse of the largest movie business of the world, its sheer diversity and contemporary trends.

Goenka, a filmmaker and professor of film production, goes behind the scenes to paint the scene. She interviews 28 leading Indian directors to talk about films from the filmmaker’s point of view.
