The Moving Images film club, in association with the US Consulate General, is presenting an Indo-American Film Festival from 19th to 21st February, at Prasad Labs Preview Theatre. A total of 8 films will be screened during the 3-day festival. Mississippi Masala will be the inaugural film that will be screened.

Mississippi Masala is a romance comedy-drama directed by Mira Nair, based upon a screenplay by Sooni Taraporevala, starring Denzel Washington, Sharmila Tagore and Roshan Seth. The film explores interracial romance between African-Americans and Indian-Americans in the United States, and takes place in Mississippi.

A third-generation Ugandan Indian family residing in Kampala is expelled from the country in 1972 by the Idi Amin regime. The father, Jay (Roshan Seth), moves with his wife, Kinnu (Sharmila Tagore) and daughter, Mina (Sarita Choudhury) to Greenwood in Mississippi, to live with family members who own a chain of motels there.

In 1990, 24-year-old Mina, who cleans at Anil's (Ranjit Chowdhry) family's motel (the Monte Cristo), falls in love with Demetrius (Denzel Washington), a local African American carpet cleaner. The respective families erupt in turmoil after the pair are confronted by members of the Indian family during a weekend of pleasure in Biloxi.

Ultimately, the two families cannot come to terms with the inter-racial pair, who flee together in Demetrius' van. Both families need to move on, both emotionally and physically, in order to grow. Jay also needs to change. After a brief return to Kampala to attend a court proceeding on the disposition of his confiscated Ugandan house, Jay relinquishes his long-nurtured dream of returning to Uganda, the place he considered home.

Entry to the film is on a first-come-first-served basis. Please contact Moving Images at 90000-74950 for further details.
