A SUITABLE GIRL

+ Director Q&A
Dir: Sarita Khurana & Smriti Mundhra
India / United States / 2017 / 94mins

Dipti, Amrita, and Ritu represent the new India. Educated, financially stable and raised with a mix of traditional and contemporary values in Mumbai and New Delhi, they have access to the world in ways their mothers did not. Yet their lives take a dramatic turn when the pressure to settle down and get married hits. Career aspirations become secondary to the pursuit of a husband, and the women struggle with the prospect of leaving their homes and families to become part of another.

Filmed over four years, A Suitable Girl follows these three young women as they juggle family, career and friends, intimately capturing their thoughts on arranged marriage, and offering a unique perspective into the nuances of this institution.

Screening daily from Fri 23rd February, check back for more times. The 18:20 screening on Fri 23rd February will be followed by a Q&A with co-director Sarita Khurana.
