NATIONAL CANADIAN FILM DAY - FREE SCREENING

April 19, 2017 – Galaxy Cinemas Chatham @ 4pm & 7pm

WATER.
Director: Deepa Mehta
Cast: Seema Biswas, Lisa Ray, John Abraham, Sarala Kariyawasam, Manorama
Run Time: 114 minutes

Set in India during the rise of Mahatma Gandhi, Water recounts the story of Chuyia (Kariyawasam), a child bride. When her husband dies suddenly, Chuyia is forced to live in an ashram for Hindu widows, essentially cut off from society. Fortunately, she finds friends in the beautiful Kilyani (Ray) and in the forward-thinking Narayan (Abraham). With their help, Chuyia attempts to escape the confines of her existence.
