Hollywood filmmaker Ang Lee, whose India-centric movie Life of Pi has opened to positive response, says storytelling is his passion and the process of getting over cultural hurdles makes filmmaking interesting for him.
From Chinese film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon to Hollywood masala movie Hulk to Brokeback Mountain, Lee has made films on stories set in different time zones and cultures.
"Whatever is interesting, I will do it. Right now I can speak and understand Chinese and English. In Life Of Pi, there was some Hindi and Tamil, which I don't follow. But I'll go wherever there's a great story to tell.
The specific cultural aspect can be overcome. In fact the process of getting over cultural hurdles makes filmmaking very interesting to me," he said.
