Nandita is one of those actors who seems to be loved everywhere she goes, and particularly at the Cannes film festival, where she has served twice as a jury member. Highly intelligent, effortlessly elegant character actor with an ability to speak numerous Indian languages, Nandita has played in over 40 feature films so far. Her memorable debut being the pioneering love story Fire, directed by Mira Nair. Nandita was able to utilise her literary background in her two features so far as a director, the subtly political drama Firaaq (2008) and Manto (2018) which premiered at Cannes Un Certain Regard.
A tireless champion of cinema and human rights, Nandita Das will be in conversation at Ciné Lumière.
