The Smithsonian Institution is hosting a screening of Deepa Mehta's Water on March 4 at the Hirshhorn Museum's Ring theater. The screening will begin at 3 pm with a conversation with Ms. Mehta and will be followed by a Q and A session with her. The conversation, screening, and Q and A are all free and open to the public, and is on a first come first serve basis. From my experience with free screenings at the Smithsonians, your interests are best served by getting there really, really early.

The movie is somewhat controversial, even the famed Indian dairy Amul has capitalized on it.
