India in Film: Monsoon Wedding at Merrill Memorial Library (Yarmouth)

September 27, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

The Camden Conference will be held February 16-18, 2024, and, in support of this year’s topic “INDIA: Rising Ambitions, Challenges at Home” Merrill Memorial library will be collaborating with The Camden Conference to offer several programs this fall. As part of that effort, the Merrill Film Society will be exhibiting and discussing a slate of films that relate to India.
Our second look at “India on film” is Mira Nair’s Monsoon Wedding, Sept. 27 @ 7 pm, in-person at MML, a film that depicts the complicated emotions that clash among family and friends during a traditional Punjabi Hindu wedding. Nair wrote the script while attending Columbia University’s MFA Film program and was able to produce with as part of a multi-national co-production involving backers from India, the US, France, and Germany. The film won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 2001 and put Nair on the map as a serious filmmaker.
 
Come join us, watch, and discuss!
