On August 8th, 2014, students from classes 11 and 12 of Isha Home School had the privilege to meet and interact with Mr. Ian La Frenais, an English writer best known for his creative partnership with Dick Clement. La Frenais and Clement are credited for the stories, scripts and screenplays of numerous well-known movies and television series, namely The Commitments (1991), Still Crazy (1998), Goal! The Dream Begins (2005), Flushed Away (2006), Across the Universe (2007) the Bank Job (2008) and Spies of Warsaw (2013 – Television Series).

The discussion was centred on the movie Across the Universe, tackling themes from the 60’s pertaining to the Vietnam War, the Music of the Beatles and the Culture of that period in general. Mr. La Frenais answered all of the students questions very candidly, giving exclusive “behind the scenes” insights on what goes on during the inception, shooting and post-production of such a grand project.
