Description - Mercy in Her Eyes by John Kenneth Muir

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.
