An investigation of India’s most notorious gang rape, Deepa Mehta’s Anatomy of Violence indicts the society that breeds rapists and instigates gender violence.

Canada-based filmmaker Deepa Mehta delves deep into the cultural aspects of contemporary India that breeds an entitlement of power exercised against women. The thought provoking film urges further discussion and deconstruction of Indian society and its norms that somehow manages to fuel enough courage in men to exercise brutality of various sorts and degrees against women in our country. Deepa’s filmography speaks volumes about her constant inner disruption in terms of cinema aesthetics as well as the subjects. Whether her Elements trilogy (‘Fire’, ‘Earth’, ‘Water’) or the adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s ‘Midnight’s Children’, critics and festival juries have debated and discussed the societal repercussions of her films.

Directed by Deepa Mehta, 93 minutes, English + Hindi, 2016
