Print Friendly




SAN FRANCISCO-  Beginning today CAAMFest will release early bird ticket sales for its centerpiece presentation: Deepa Mehta’s MIDNIGHT’S CHILDREN (Sunday, March 17, 2013, 5pm at the historic Castro Theatre).  Based on the celebrated 1981 novel written by Salman Rushdie, MIDNIGHT’S CHILDREN tells the tale of two boys born into opposite classes of wealth and poverty, switched at birth on the day India became an independent nation. Following a world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival and a Gala Presentation spotlight at Vancouver International Film Festival, CAAM is thrilled to bring MIDNIGHT’S CHILDREN to the Bay Area for its San Francisco Premiere.


Critically acclaimed Deepa Mehta is regarded as one of the most provocative and influential filmmakers to make an impact in world cinema. Her films are known for their bold, outspoken approach on issues of intolerance and prejudice, often evoking thoughts of cultural practices that both divide and unite us. No stranger to the CAAM family, Mehta has screened many of her previous films at the festival: FIRE (1997), WATER (2006) and COOKING WITH STELLA (2010). With Mehta, and Producer David Hamilton, in attendance at this year’s festival, CAAM is rolling out the red carpet with a very special event in her honor.
