In India, films play an integral role in uniting people from different religious, ethnic, linguistic, economic, and class backgrounds. For over a century, the Hindi film industry (colloquially known as Bollywood) has attempted to represent the country’s multitude of voices. A panel of expert filmmakers, journalists, and academics explores how Bollywood cinema represents India’s various identities and how that storytelling can continue to evolve and include all Indians.
Panelists Tejaswini Ganti (Associate Professor, NYU), Sri Rao (screenwriter/producer), and Anisha Jhaveri (Film Critic, Indiewire)
Presented by The India Center Foundation
