Auteur Deepa Mehta (Water, SFIAAFF ’06) returns to the festival with her much-anticipated collaboration with writer Salman Rushdie, an adaptation of his award-winning novel Midnight’s Children. Born at the exact moment of India’s independence, Saleem leads the “midnight’s children:” those born within that hour, all with magical powers.
Before the screening, indulge in delicious hors d’oeuvres and drinks to celebrate this special event.
