Master Class with Filmmaker Deepa Mehta

February 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
York's Cinespace Studio, 777 Kipling Ave. (s. of Bloor)

Join Toronto writer/director Deepa Mehta for a master-class case study of her extraordinary 2016 feature Anatomy of Violence, in conversation with Regent Park Film Festival Director Ananya Ohri.

Mehta is an award–winning filmmaker whose thirteen celebrated features include Midnight's Children, Heaven on Earth, and the Elements trilogy (Fire, Earth, Water). Anatomy of Violence uses extensive improvisation with her ensemble of actors to explore the root causes leading to the notorious 2012 Delhi bus gang rape, becoming an unforgettable study of this horrific crime. Screening clips and analyzing scenes, Orhi and Mehta will explore how Anatomy both radically departs from but also continues Mehta's profound explorations of gender, culture and power.
