Upcoming Events

  • Film Group, March 28 at 3pm

The film "Dil Se" (1998) by Mani Ratnam will be shown. Many Ratnam controversially uses Bollywood musical style to present political issues concerning Indian unity, specifically within the troubled Assam region of northeast India but also, in the wider sense, across India itself. In this film, an All-India Radio reporter, travelling to far eastern India to report on Indian unity amidst the celebrations of 50 years of Indian independence, becomes infatuated with a mysterious young woman with separatist connections.
