Meet Mira Nair, an Indian director- The Namesake, Monsoon Wedding, Amelia and many other wonderful projects. Last night we met her at the Burns, up close and personal. First we were served up a 5 small films from her cinema archives and as we were digesting these gems the lights came up and dessert time. She and Janet Maslin appeared in front of us for a discussion and we and the rest of all fully packed theater, were mesmerized for 60 minutes and more.
Mira Nair, her life, her passion her engagment in the world of films, her world canvas, her unassuming approach to us- we pinched each other.
How blessed we are for this life.
