Seeing Bombay/Mumbai

Date

7.20 - 7.50pm

The home of Bollywood and Slumdog Millionaire, Bombay is a city that for most people exists via its on-screen portrayal.

Whether it's the glamour of India's kaleidoscope film industry, the rags to riches romance as told through director Danny Boyle or news depictions of religious riots, the city has many faces, but which is the real Bombay?

Shakuntala Banaji (LSE) charts the ever shifting image of the city, its highs and lows through its depiction in cinema, new media and a global mass media.
