I'm looking at developing a course (undergrad) on women in Asian film (and I might throw in Middle Eastern as well).  This would be a completely new area to me, so I'd appreciate any suggestions for films and books.  I would definitely include Born in Brothels and a good Bollywood movie, probably Monsoon Wedding, and maybe a more traditional Bollywood as a baseline.
