AJFF Connects: Shalom Bollywood

Public
AJFF is delighted to present an encore presentation of Shalom Bollywood: The Untold Story of Indian Cinema, celebrating the unique cross-section of cultures that informed the development of Indian cinema. Presented in partnership with the Ismaili Council for the Southeastern United States.

Join us at the Ismaili Jamatkhana on Sunday, August 26th at 3:00 PM for a tour of the center, the film screening, guest speakers, and a live dance performance.

The Ismaili Jamatkhana is located at 4405-A International Blvd NW, Norcross, GA 30093.
Capacity is limited. Tickets (FREE) required.

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.
