As a woman in my late 20s, Sex and the City was responsible for helping shape a lot of my ideas about what I did and definitely didn’t want out of the dating world that stretched before me — especially since I was still in braces when I began watching the series. There is one Season 6 scene that stuck out as an iconic moment for me, in which a couple was introduced to Carrie at a party, an international couple who made documentaries together, which I held onto as an ideal illustration of what I wanted out of a future relationship.
“So now, Rama and I split our time between Los Angeles and Calcutta…Rama hates Los Angeles.
Frozen yogurt is not culture.
So she stays in our home in Calcutta while I edit our movies in Los Angeles.
But I get final Calcutta.”
My mother is a documentary filmmaker, and I always thought how ideal it would be if I could grow up and do the same, AND find a partner who wanted to work together. Those four little lines of SATC dialogue struck the exact chord of what I wanted out of a future relationship: for love, travel, and work to be intertwined!
Around 8 years later, I met an editor, fell in love with him, and wrote a small comedic short film.
Hey, this was happening! It was really happening! Time to collaborate! Time to get final Calcutta, like that ballsy, insouciant Indian co-star role on the last season of Sex and the City!
I wrote, directed and acted in this short film about the absurdities of typecasting in Hollywood, and he edited it. We traveled all the way from Los Feliz (east side of Los Angeles) to Venice (west side of Los Angeles) to shoot it. He was on-set to help me, as this was my first time directing. And then we cut the short film together in his office, while he was on hiatus from his full-time editing job on The Vampire Diaries, so I was lucky he had time to work on it as glamorous, glimmer-teethed, bouncy-haired vampires take up all of his time during the season. I’m happy to share the result of our collaboration here.
