Public Screening of Deepa Mehta's 'Beeba Boys'

Date & Time:
February 2, 2016 | 7:00 pm
The Globe Cinema, 617 8 Avenue SW, Calgary
Deepa Mehta

Deepa Mehta is the director of numerous internationally acclaimed films including Sam & Me (1991), Fire (1996) and the Academy Award-nominated Water (2005).

Beeba Boys: a ferocious, adrenaline-charged Indo Canadian gang war, and a violent clash of culture and crime. Gang leader Jeet Johar and his young, loyal, and often-brutal crew dress like peacocks, love attention, and openly compete with an old style Indo crime syndicate to take over the Vancouver drug and arms scene. Blood is spilled, hearts are broken, and family bonds shattered as the Beeba Boys ("Good Boys") do anything "to be seen and to be feared" in a white world.

Deepa Mehta will be in attendance for a Q&A Discussion after the movie
