Summer

Seeing Bombay/Mumbai

25 June 2013

7.20 - 7.50pm

Venue:

RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London W1B 1AD

Description:

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.

Part of Summer Last Tuesday - Mumbai!
