Fire (1996)

107 mins

Director: Deepa Mehta, India/Canada subtitles
This is the first of Deepa Mehta’s ‘Elements Trilogy’. (We previously screened ‘Earth’ and ‘Water’). Two brothers and their wives share a home with their mother in a traditional Hindu household in Delhi. Each of them feels trapped by their unhappy domestic circumstances, and we see how they break cultural taboos to find fulfilment and happiness.
