Local film-maker Bindu De Stoppani hosts a special screening at the Electric Palace cinema this weekend of her latest feature, Finding Camille. Here, Annie Waite hears about Bindu’s process for creating this moving, intimate and at times heartbreakingly humorous on-the-road journey of a father and daughter getting to know each other.
