Deepa Mehta’s much anticipated adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children continues to top the Canadian Box office since its release November 2nd.  The film screened at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival as a part of the Gala Presentations programme and is the eighth film for the Oscar nominated director.

Midnight’s Children begins at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, as India declares independence from Great Britain, two newborn babies are switched by a nurse in a Bombay hospital. Saleem Sinai, the illegitimate son of a poor woman, and Shiva, the offspring of a wealthy couple, are fated to live the destiny meant for each other. Their lives become mysteriously intertwined and are inextricably linked to India’s whirlwind journey of triumphs and disasters.

The film was shot on 35mm in Sri Lanka with a schedule of 70 days of main unit shooting and three months of second unit.   Our Technicolor office in the UK handled the dailies while Technicolor Toronto finished the film, providing second unit dailies, final color, conform & packaging and deliverables (DCP & film out).
