Sonoma Film Institute Presents, Shalom Bollywood: The Untold Story Of Indian Cinema

  • Warren Theater, Ives 101 (map)

SHALOM BOLLYWOOD celebrates the all singing, all dancing history of the world’s largest film industry, revealing the unlikely story of the 2,000-year-old Indian Jewish community and its formative place in shaping the world’s largest film industry. When Indian cinema began 100 years ago it was taboo for Hindu and Muslim women to perform on screen, so Indian Jewish women took on female lead roles, which they then dominated for decades. SHALOM BOLLYWOOD focuses on the lives of Indian cinema’s Jewish icons at the heart of Bollywood from the turn of the 20th century to the present day. Directed by Danny Ben-Moshe. (2017, 76 min.)
