Production Talk: K. Rajagopal on 'A Yellow Bird'
The journey filmmaker K Rajagopal (Raja) has taken over the span of almost three decades reminds us that filmmaking does not always run on a steam engine and instead can be a more personal experience that takes time to mature and unfold. Raja first hit the local film scene by being winning the Special Jury Prize at the Singapore International Film Festival Silver Screen Awards three years in a row with his short films ‘I Can’t Sleep Tonight’ (1995), ‘The Glare’ (1996) and ‘Absence’ (1997).

What kind of doors have opened for you since the completion of ‘A Yellow Bird’?
