Deepa Mehta’s Heaven On Earth premieres at Toronto Festival

Mumbai: Deepa Mehta’s Heaven on Earth, which highlights the prevalence of abuse and domestic violence in the immigrant community, premiered at the 33rd Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Mehta was present at the screening with her entire team, including lead actress Preity Zinta.

Heaven on Earth is inspired partly by Roddy Doyle’s novel The Woman who Walked into Doors and partly by a woman Mehta met in Edmonton who’d been abused for nine years before she left her husband and joined the police force.
