(2000), Bride and Prejudice (2004), Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (2008) and It's a Wonderful Afterlife (2010).  She was awarded an OBE in 2006.  In this Director's Cut, Gurinder Chadha will discuss the themes which infuse her narrative blend of comedy and drama, and the cultural territory her films traverse.      Download Poster
