"Shalom Bollywood" film at AJFF
English, Hindi, subtitles
Full of unexpected delights, SHALOM BOLLYWOOD tells of the Jewish stars that dominated early Indian cinema. When the world’s largest film industry began, it was frowned upon for Hindu and Muslim women to appear on screen. So their roles were played by India’s Jewish community, Baghdadi and Bene Israel descendants that faced no taboos about performing in public. From the silent era through Bollywood’s golden age, Indian cinema icons share their highs and lows and how their careers pushed the boundaries of Indian-Jewish culture. Interviews plus rare archival footage and retro-style music and animation, revive the all-singing, all-dancing cheeky feel of a Bollywood production.
