Deepa Mehta, In Profile

Top of page

Deepa Mehta describes herself as a cultural hybrid. She finds her passion and her stories in India and the freedom to choose how to make her films in Canada.  A woman in a gold and maroon sari stands next to a window, looking out onto the chilly blue light of a snowy Toronto landscape. The image (from the film Heaven on Earth) dissolves to reveal Deepa’s profile as she talks about moving between the two worlds of Canada and India. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada in co-operation with the National Arts Centre and the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards Foundation on the occasion of the 2012 Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards.
