I am in love with Deepa Mehta's movie "Water". In 2005 this triumphant movie was up for an Oscar nomination and yet I never heard of it until I stumbled upon it at the library. The music and the beautiful scenery is breathtaking and the truth that is exposed is mind boggling. It is very easy to be judgmental of other people's cultures and mores yet this movie demonstrates how hard it is for a culture to break free from old and very harmful traditions.
I can't wait to be taken in by Deepa's other two films "Heaven on Earth" and "Fire". They both look like amazing films. Click on the titles to see the trailers.
After studying Deepa Mehta's I am convinced that she is a fearless Goddess.
