Home / Now Showing / MISSISSIPPI MASALA
Fleeing Idi Amin’s 1972 reign of terror against Asian Ugandans, Mina (Sarita Choudhury) and her parents relocate to Greenwood, Mississippi. As time passes, Mina is able to assimilate into American culture, even falling in love with a Black man, Demetrius (Denzel Washington), despite her community’s disapproval. Mira Nair’s masterpiece explores intercultural relationships, the effects of terrorism and forced immigration on displaced peoples, and the intersectional powers and privileges American society has always relied upon, all through the deeply moving tale of one family from Kampala.
