Ranjan Sharda’s VO over footage of London, offices, markets, etc., says she needs to look beyond the greyness of the city, and is drawn by the colour of street life. She says her work is influenced by the way black, Asian and white cultures, cross over. Sharda with video camera, looking at jewellery on market stall, at outdoor restaurant.
