Jane Champion, 1999

This season, The Screen at Contemporary presents Radical Delusions; a series of eight classic films exploring the world of unbound worship, blind faith, dangerous ideas and violent reverence. Join us.

A young woman joins a spiritual movement in India, only to be coerced back by her family when they hire a “de-programmer”. What follows is a claustrophobic and humid tug of war between the two leads. Machoism, sexual currency, power and individual ego is played out with Champions usual keen eye and brutal lens.
