Moving Images: Water (2005)
Directed by deepa mehta, 115 minutes, Hindi with English subtitles
Thursday, December 6, 7:00 p.m.
Free admission

Mehta’s Water is set in 1938, at which time child marriage was common practice in India, and widows had a diminished position in society. We follow Chuyia, an eight-year-old girl whose husband suddenly dies. In keeping with traditions of widowhood, she is dressed in a white sari, her head is shaved and she is left in an ashram to spend the rest of her life in renunciation. Young Chuyia’s presence in the ashram disrupts established norms among its residents.

Join CAM Curator of Fashion Arts and Textiles Cynthia Amnéus, who will moderate a post-film discussion with Dr. Amy Lind, Mary Ellen Heintz Professor and Head of the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Dr. Shailaja Paik, Associate Professor of History, both from the University of Cincinnati.

Visit the museum before the film to view The Fabric of India exhibition – with free admission Thursdays after 5:00 p.m.
