Film Screening: Water - 7 March

Film Screening - Water

Throughout 2013 UTS Library will be screening International Films. To kick off we will be hosting a FREE film screening of the Hindi movie Water. Did we mention there'll be popcorn?

Plot Summary: Chuyia is a seven year old child bride who has just lost her husband and is sent to live out her life in a widow’s ashram. Through her eyes, we explore life in a 1930’s Indian ashram and see how women survived as outcasts of society. In the background, Gandhi’s party is making progress for women’s rights and we watch how these two worlds of old and new collide. Water is the 3rd film in Deepa Mehta’s highly acclaimed and controversial film trilogy (Fire 1996, Earth 1998 and Water 2005) and was nominated for an Oscar.

Watch the trailer.
