    She has many beautiful films. My favorite is My Own Country- about the plight of a town dealing with the unknown disease in the 80’s - now AIDS. Based on Abraham Varghese’s book. Such compassion. Beautiful Film. Right up there with Randy Shiltz’s And the Band Played On.

    Too bad she didn’t learn the core spiritual mystery of India and keeps hooked on some stereotyping of race and gender. Great beautiful work but old school ideas to the younger generation and enlightened people.
