Winner of multiple Genie (Canada’s Oscars) Awards. Adapted from Salman Rushdie’s Booker Prize winning 1981 bestseller, Deepa Mehta’s vision of Midnight’s Children’s is the long-awaited film adaptation. Prepare for a feast of magical realism and rich with layer upon layer of meaning, history, and memory. Voiced by Salman Rushdie himself, the film is presented to us in the form of a tale, akin to the Indian oral tradition and Arabian Nights. Late era colonial India is the setting. The questions around religion, independence, and eventually- partition- are not distant. These questions, and eventually the answers, are integral the way their lives unfold. A delight from start to finish, the fable given us in Midnight’s Children’s. Yet it is not simply a fable, it is visual poetry.
