A Suitable Girl
Tuesday, March 30 @ 8:00 pm
Watch With WHBPAC
Join WHBPAC as we watch the wicked and the wacky, the worldly and the woebegone – together! This weekly assemblage of patrons and staff will leave you warm, well-rounded, and – on the whole – well prepared to weather whatever the fates might weave for us next.
The WHBPAC has curated a series of films available on streaming services you may already subscribe to, and will moderate a chat as patrons watch and comment in real-time. Designed to be tech easy (and easy on the wallet), this program will educate and inspire up to 100 people a night. Donations to the WHBPAC, a non-profit performing arts center that has been closed since March 2020, are very much welcomed.
A Suitable Girl follows three young women in India struggling to maintain their identities and follow their dreams amid intense pressure to get married. The film examines the women’s complex relationship with marriage, family, and society.
