Wednesday, September 19 - Saturday, September 22
@@ Fukuoka City's Elgala Hall

The seventeenth Fukuoka International Film Festival is presenting a trilogy by outspoken Indian-Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta. It is the first time that Ms. Mehta, whose powerful films often examine different aspects of her cultural heritage, will be introduced in Japan. The provocative gElementsh trilogy consists of Fire (1996), Earth (1998) and Water (2005). Water was particularly controversial and acclaimed, receiving a 2007 Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. The three films span India's recent past as they illustrate how customs and traditions have wrought hardship and influenced the fate of Indian women.

Duration 101 min., 104 min., 118 min. Language: Hindu, English with Japanese subtitles.

Dave Brownsound (guitars and vocals) has spent the last ten years as part of Ajax, Ontario's most loved multi-platinum band, Sum 41. Brownsound left the band in early 2006 to work more intensely on Brown Brigade. With collective influences that include funk, old school hip-hop, metal and rock, Brown Brigade's special blend is a departure from their straight-ahead punk roots.
