MY MOTHER INDIA
It is no wonder that Safina Uberoi made a film about her family: She has an Indian father who collects kitch calendars, an Australian mother who hangs her knickers out to dry in front of the horrified Indian neighbours, a grandfather who was a self-styled Guru and a fiercely man-hating grandmother. What begins as a quirky and humorous documentary about an eccentric, multicultural upbringing unfolds into a complex commentary on the social, political and religious events of the anti-Sikh riots in 1984 which tore this family apart. This is a powerful tale of love and hate, exile and belonging, loss of identity and return to faith.
