Citations de Deepa Mehta [en anglais]

« I'm not naive. I know that films are very powerful. But I certainly don't say, 'I'm going to make a film that has a social message,' or 'Because I'm coloured or I'm a woman it has to be this way, otherwise it might be misinterpreted.' I want to be free to explore everything, even something that doesn't make me look too good. If I want to explore it, it has to come from a place of honesty and not what is expected of me because I happen to be non-White or a woman. »
-- Deepa Mehta (source)

« My father, who was a distributor in India, told me there were two things in life you will never know about: one is when you are going to die and the other is how a film is going to do at the box office. When you grow up with that kind of philosophy, you never say I'm going to make this film so I can make another one if this film does well. You don't have a clue how a film is going to turn out. »
-- Deepa Mehta (source)

Citations sur Deepa Mehta [en anglais]

« [Deepa] Mehta resists the expectation that as a diasporic film-maker she must present her nation in positive ways for viewing and consumption by the West. »
-- Bidisha Banerjee (source)

« As a humanist filmmaker, [Deepa] Mehta has demonstrated her penchant for creating complex human dramas in equally complex social settings. »
-- Amy Fung (source)

« Drawn to all types of conflict, whether it be personal or political, Deepa Mehta patrols the horizon of everyday reality like a Canadian peacekeeper: watchful, empathetic and ever hopeful that she can make a difference every time she maps a landmine of intolerance. »
-- Katherine Monk (source)

« What is unique about [Deepa] Mehta's filmography in Canadian cinema is not only her broad commercial success, but also her continued ability to bring her dual perspective to bear on both of her home countries, to continue making movies in India despite intense and sometimes violent protests, and to continue making movies in Canada despite ongoing funding battles. »
-- David L. Pike (source)

« In her Indian films, [Deepa] Mehta does question and deconstruct the attempts of the post-colonial nation-state to perpetuate and mobilize tradition (or the collective archetype) in the name of what fundamentalist Hindu parties perceive as national survival vis-à-vis the economic and cultural threats brought on by globalization, Western individualism, and consumerism. In her North American films, however, she probes the exclusivity of said individualism and consumerism as the only desirable way to go, and thus implies, if not points to, a possible hybrid ideal, one that combines the best of both worlds. »
-- Christina Stojanova (source)

« In [Deepa] Mehta's oeuvre, transnational realities are deftly acknowledged and straddled alongside a feminist ethical stance. »
-- Sharon Lin Tay (source)
