A Suitable Girl Sheds Light at The Tribeca Film Festival

A Suitable Girl Sheds Light at The Tribeca Film Festival

T2C sat down for  an interview with filmmakers Sarita Khurana, Smriti Mundhra and Jennifer Tiexiera during the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. After viewing their film “A Suitable Girl.” A Suitable Girl follows three young women in India struggling to maintain their identities and follow their dreams amid intense pressure to get married. Ritu, Dipti and Amrita represent the new India. Educated, financially stable and raised with a mix of traditional and contemporary values in the urban cities of Mumbai and New Delhi, they have access to the world in ways their mothers did not. Yet their lives take a dramatic turn when the pressure to settle down and get married hits. Career aspirations become secondary to the pursuit of a husband, and the women struggle with the prospect of leaving their homes and families to become part of another. Documenting the arranged marriage and matchmaking process in vérité over four years, the film examines the women’s complex relationships with the institution of marriage and the many nuanced ways society molds them into traditional roles and makes it nearly impossible to escape.

T2C was eager to meet the filmmakers and asked them how they came to make this film. You will be moved by the filmmakers showing not only the emotional journey of  the young women, but also the emotional roller coaster experienced by the parents.
