Maybe it’s a generalisation but I think culturally things are changing [in the U.S.] We are becoming a little bit more aware and open to international [film and television] – like Bollywood. I’m Indian, I grew up well aware of Bollywood and Filipino cinema and international material. I think, as a diversifying country, hopefully we’ll get there.
