AUDIENCE AWARD – FICTION FILM L.A. Outfest 1997
GRAND JURY AWARD, OUTSTANDING ACTRESS IN A FEATURE FILM Vancouver International Film Festival 1997
Considered a queer classic of Asian cinema today, award-winning filmmaker Deepa Mehta’s film Fire was considered the first mainstream Indian film to explore lesbianinism. Sita and Radha are young Indian women in loveless marriages whose husbands choose celibacy or mistresses over their wives. This leads them to form an intimate, passionate relationship amidst a close-minded society. Fire challenges all the foundations in which society is built upon, such as family, marriage, religion and sex.
