The film Water by filmmaker Deepa Mehta is available in the instant play section of Netflix, where so many wonderful films languish. It's a very good film.
Mehta concedes that Water is a call to action — but not in the way you might think.
“We are very good, as different nations and different cultures, to have a collective amnesia about our own [problems],” says Mehta. “[Water] is about three women trying to break that cycle and trying to find dignity, and trying to get rid of the yoke of oppression, and if it inspires people to do something in their own culture, that’s what’s important.”
