Shalom Bollywood: The Untold Story of Indian Cinema
This delightful documentary reveals the role of India's Jewish community in establishing the world's largest film industry.
In the early 20th century, it was taboo for Hindu and Islamic women to perform on screen, so those female roles were portrayed by Jewish women. Richly illustrated with lively excerpts tracing the development of Indian cinema, Shalom Bollywood profiles silent-era star Sulochana (Ruby Myers); 1930s party queen Miss Rose (Rose Ezra); Pramila (Esther Abraham); and saucy vamp Nadira (Farhat Ezekiel). The film also features contemporary Bollywood celebrities commenting on the legacy of these mega-stars.
Co-presented by 3 Stars Jewish Cinema and DFW South Asian Film Festival.
