Larger Than Life: India’s Bollywood Film Culture

This program travels extensively through the colorful landscape of Indian cinema, providing insightful contrasts and comparisons to the film industry most Westerners know. Interviews with Shah Rukh Khan, India’s rugged action hero, and Manisha Koirala, a top female star, examine the unusual pressures of Indian film acting. Sensuality without sex, the brevity of female stardom, and the premium placed on fantasy and escape are some of the issues discussed. For an exploration of “the other Hollywood”—vastly different from, yet surprisingly similar to, America’s—Larger Than Life promises an unequalled itinerary. (Portions in Hindi with English subtitles, 57 minutes)
