"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."
