Film Screening of Shalom Bollywood: The Untold Story of Indian Cinema

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Infused with music and dancing, "Shalom Bollywood: The Untold Story of Indian Cinema" (2017), directed by Australian documentary filmmaker Danny Ben-Moshe, tells the story of the Indian Jewish community and its formative role in the world's largest film industry.

In the silent era, Hindu and Muslim women in India refused to appear in the new medium of movies and female roles were played by men. This state of affairs was remedied by women from India's small Jewish community, who faced no great cultural taboos about performing in public. The lively film tells the story of four of these female superstars - Sulochana, Pramila, Miss Rose, and Nadira - as well as popular character actor David Abraham.
