A unique voice in cinema today, Mira Nair's films feature an incomparably sensuous visual style yet at the same time record the injustice of the disenfranchised and the cross-pollination of East and West. Her twin themes of realism and romance make for dazzling cinema as evidenced in: Salaam Bombay! (1988); Mississippi Masala (1991); The Perez Family (1993); Kama Sutra (1996); My Own Country (1998); Monsoon Wedding (2001); Hysterical Blindness (2002); Vanity Fair (2004); and The Namesake (releasing 2006). Muir analyses all of Nair's work, including her documentaries.
