Love and Apocalypse

2 Episodes

The luminous Sarita Choudhury stars in a pair of early-1990s touchstones by trailblazing by Asian American women filmmakers. Choudhury made her striking screen debut opposite Denzel Washington in Mira Nair’s MISSISSIPPI MASALA, a vibrant, sexy love story that spans the cultures of India, Uganda, and the American South. Then, Choudhury is a lesbian mother drawn into a sinister corporate conspiracy in Shu Lea Cheang’s FRESH KILL, an anarchic ecosatire set on a postapocalyptic Staten Island.
