Dear Jassi


After an 8-year hiatus the Indian auteur is here with a Romeo-and-Juliet tale inspired by true events. In 1996 Punjab, Canadian-born Indian girl Jassi falls in love with Mithu, a rickshaw driver who is beneath her social status. Is their love strong enough to fight the dictates imposed by Punjabi society? Owing to its shocking and impactful ending, Singh’s film was awarded the Platform Prize at TIFF.
