Veteran film editor Alan Heim today said that though he had not watched many Indian movies but he was impressed with the work of Satyajit Ray.
Speaking to media here at the ongoing 47th International Film Festival of India (IFFI), he said, ''I have not seen many of the Indian films, mostly because of the absence of subtitles, but when I saw the work of Satyajit Ray, it knocked me off.''
He conducted a master-class on editing at 47th IFFI . He said his master class sessions were well attended by curious audience, and students at his sessions asked interesting and to the point questions.
He added the Indian students at his classes were much more interested in emotional content.
He said at the festival, he watched two Indian films and found them remarkable.
