Directed by Deepa Mehta
Set in modern day New Dehli, this complicated tale of two
sisters-in-law who find love and comfort in each other is surprisingly
tender. Fire won the award for
Best Canadian Film from the Vancouver International Film Festival (1996)
as well as the Public Award from the Barcelona International Women's
Festival (1997). Deepa Mehta won the Special Prize of the Jury from
the International Filmfest Mannheim-Heidelberg (1996).
