“It was a delight to experience Crossing Lines and to share in Indira Somani’s journey. The film is very moving and intimate, and to any of us with an Indian family (or a Volkswagen Beetle in our past) it makes a powerful connection. Indira’s story is different from mine (my father was from India), but it rings true to the immigrant experience of any American family. And her wonderful, poignant and personal story is one that like so many American stories reaches across oceans and continents in search of our family histories and truths. Congratulations to Indira on telling her story so well.”
