Acclaimed Producer and Filmmaker, Mira Nair in conversation with Pico Iyer
May 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm$10
UCSB Arts & Lectures presents acclaimed producer and filmmaker, Mira Nair in conversation with Pico on Wednesday, May 26 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific.
From her first feature, the Oscar-nominated Salaam Bombay!, to her new six-part series, A Suitable Boy, Mira Nair has established herself as one of the freshest and most fearless directors working today. Raised in India and educated at Harvard, Nair takes us from Uganda to New York City to rural India in her work to give us worlds we’ve seldom seen before. Her groundbreaking films include Mississippi Masala, The Namesake, Monsoon Wedding and Queen of Katwe and frequently explore issues around identity and displacement. Away from the camera, she has worked to support filmmaking and young directors in both East Africa and South Asia and is known for her love of music, acting and literature.
This conversation with Pico Iyer will be followed by a moderated Q&A.
