Bollywood and Diaspora Films

| |

Bollywood! Masala films, with dancing, stories with grand romance, and the music! Actually Indian film is much larger than that, the cinema of South India, and the films of the diaspora, particularly in Europe and North America. Stories that run the gamut of life; negotiating power structures of alien cultures, navigating when uprooted, the barriers of culture and language, identity, and of course true love. Ranging from home to abroad these tales span contents and centuries.
