Tamil Mersal in Gdańsk. Differences in the culture and organisation of work on a film set in India and Poland (case study)

In 2017, the author of the article was the production manager for the shooting of a Tamil film entitled Mersal, which was partially filmed in the Tricity. In the movie, Gdańsk was supposed to imitate Paris. Half of the film crew responsible for production were Poles and half were Indian. Based on his own observations and analysis of the literature, the author describes the differences between filmmakers from two very distant cultures: both in terms of the general understanding of cinema, but also in practice and the approach to the filmmaking process.
