Deepa Mehta’s movie Water

Indian filmmaker Deepa Mehta’s new movie Water is now in theaters. The third of her elements trilogy, the original filming of Water in India was prevented by violent protests by Hindu extremists who destroyed the set and burned images of Mehta in effigy. Mehta took up the script again five years later and relocated the shoot to Sri Lanka with a different cast. Seeing Salman Rushie interview Deepa Mehta on the Charlie Rose Show finally pushed me over the edge to put this one on the list of things to see in the theaters.

Water is currently playing at the Landmark River Oaks Theater. Click for showtimes. Google Map It.
