Water by Deepa Mehta

Join us for a screening of Deepa Mehta’s acclaimed film Water (2005; 115 min.), part of the Elements trilogy. Set in 1938 Colonial India, against Mahatma Gandhi’s rise to power, the story begins when eight-year-old Chuyia is widowed and sent to a home where Hindu widows must live in penitence. Chuyia’s feisty presence affects the lives of the other residents, including a beautiful young widow, who falls for a Gandhian idealist.
This screening is offered in conjunction with the installation Women in South Asian Art, on view in the University Teaching Gallery at Harvard Art Museums from August 26, 2017–January 7, 2018.
Free Admission

Please also join us to continue Mehta’s Elements trilogy with screenings of Fire on Friday, September 29 and Earth on Friday, October 27 at 2 pm in Menschel Hall.
