ARRANGED MARRIAGES

A Westerner explores the institution of arranged marriages with her =
married Indian friends. She finds that there are many variations in the =
way these marriages are arranged, but in all cases, the marriage is a =
family matter, often used to reinforce the social standing of the =
family, and to preserve values from generation to generation. =

MAHARAJAH BURGER

This film takes a wry look at the cultural confrontation of East and =

THE TEMPLE OF DOOM

the fundamentalist Hindus, who have become less tolerant of minorities =
