Deepa Mehta is one of Canada’s most distinguished contemporary filmmakers. With her dual focus on highlighting this country’s diverse multicultural make-up and the portrayal of strong women characters, she has been unwavering in giving socio-historical and political context to her remarkable cinema, most notably in the multiple-award-winning Water, a Film Circuit favourite. With films like Bollywood/Hollywood, she has also demonstrated her astute flair for the more whimsical sides of storytelling.

Like Water, Heaven on Earth is first and foremost a study of a female character who must cope with very difficult circumstances. The protagonist, a young Indian woman (Bollywood superstar Preity Zinta), is involved in an arranged marriage with an Indo-Canadian who, as it turns out, is highly abusive. Her situation is wretched, but she is largely powerless to improve it. New to Canada and at the mercy of her husband, she quite literally has nowhere to go – except into the recesses of her thriving imagination. As the film unfolds and her situation becomes more gruesome, the parallel world of her own construction starts taking over as her fantasy universe becomes a far more viable place to inhabit than her real environment.
