“Mother Teresa & Me” film explores saint’s self doubts
The starcast of the upcoming film “Mother Teresa & Me” visited the city. It is an English movie starring Banita Sandhu, Jacqueline Fritschi-Cornaz, and Deepti Naval in prominent roles. It is written and directed by Kamal Musale.
In a compelling parallel story, the movie features Mother Teresa as the “woman behind the saint” and Kavita, a young, contemporary Indian woman. Hence, the film inspires an international audience of all ages and classes to speak up for peace and justice within their personal sphere of influence.
Teresa and Kavita: Two women’s lives – passionate and uncompromising – interwoven in two parallel stories across generations. Both women realise their vocation despite great personal doubts.
These interwoven stories show us Mother Teresa, the woman behind the myth, in a completely new dimension. Her loss of faith inspires the fierce Kavita, a young Englishwoman with Indian roots, to discover real love and empathy in contemporary Calcutta..
