Cultures and families clash in Mira Nair's exuberant Monsoon Wedding, a mix of comedy and chaotic melodrama concerning the preparations for the arranged marriage of a modern upper-middle-class Indian family's only daughter. Despite numerous complications that ensue, Nair's celebration is ultimately joyful and cathartic: a long song to her home city of Delhi and her own Punjabi family.

Families on Film is presented in collaboration with the University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film and College of Arts and Letters.

Tickets are $5 for Museum members, $7 for nonmembers.
