About This Event

ARRAY\'s special tribute to the vital, groundbreaking career of filmmaker Mira Nair as her landmark films MONSOON WEDDING and MISSISSIPPI MASALA celebrate their 20-year and 30-year anniversaries respectively. Q&A with Mira Nair + ARRAY Founder Ava DuVernay to follow the screening.\ \ Cultures and families clash in a mix of comedy and chaotic melodrama concerning the preparations for the arranged marriage of a modern upper-middle-class Indian family’s only daughter, Aditi. Of course there are hitches—Aditi has been having an affair with a married TV host; she’s never met her husband to be, who lives in Houston; the wedding has worsened her father’s hidden financial troubles; even the wedding planner has become a nervous wreck—as well as buried family secrets. \ \ \ About the Filmmaker: Mira Nair is an Academy-Award nominated director best known for her visually dense films that pulsate with life. Her debut feature, Salaam Bombay! (1988) won the Caméra d’Or at Cannes, followed by the groundbreaking Mississippi Masala, the Golden Globe & Emmy-winning Hysterical Blindness (2001) and the international hit Monsoon Wedding (2001), for which she was the first woman to win Venice Film Festival’s coveted Golden Lion.\ \ A fiercely independent filmmaker, she then made Vanity Fair (2004), The Namesake (2006), The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2012), and Queen of Katwe (2016). Nair\'s recent Limited Series for BBC/Netflix is an adaptation of Vikram Seth’s epic tale, A Suitable Boy (2020), a sprawling tale of identity and love in a newly independent India. Currently, Nair is directing the pilot of the series National Treasure for DisneyPlus and JBTV. In 2022, she will direct the feature film AMRI about Amrita Sher-Gil, India’s great modernist painter. Future projects include The Jungle Prince of Delhi, an Amazon Series with Sister Pictures.\ \ Years in the making, Nair’s Monsoon Wedding, the Musical, opens in India, in 2022. An activist by nature, Nair founded Salaam Baalak Trust
