Santosh Sivan gets rare American honour

One of Indian cinema’s most distinguished cinematographers has been inducted into the prestigious American Society Of Cinematographers (ASC).

The ASC is an organization whose members are all cinematographers from across the world. Santosh Sivan is the first South-Asian cinematographer to be thus honoured. The ASC has only 340 members.

Reacting to the honour, Sivan said, “I guess I’ve to thank all my directors. This means something special cause the visual language is a universal one, so I guess being invited by accomplished visual artists is special. The ASC has very limited visual artists who belong to one of the oldest society in the world. I was invited by Michael Chapman who was the cinematographer for Martin Scorcese’s Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and so on. So yeah, it’s a good feeling.”
