Watch the encore presentation of the Mira Nair Tribute at AFI FEST presented by Audi – Watch Now
Today’s movie club pick isn’t a film, but a tribute to a fantastic filmmaker! With her directorial debut, SALAAM BOMBAY! (1988), Mira Nair won the Caméra d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and later went on to earn an Academy Award® nomination for Best Foreign Language film. Since then she has become a modern cinema master with films such as MISSISSIPPI MASALA (1991), MONSOON WEDDING (2001) and THE NAMESAKE (2006).
AFI FEST presented by Audi salutes director and activist Mira Nair this year with a special conversation moderated by Indiewire Editor-at-Large Anne Thompson.
