Asian film season – music in movies

Asian Film Season: Music in Movies

What would movies be without music and songs? How does soundtrack layer and enhance a filmic narrative? How much does a film music reflect its context and culture? What is special about Bollywood song and dance? A special season of film screenings which explore the use of music and soundtrack in feature films from South Asia. In addition there will be some documentaries on Indian music and musicians.

Each film will be book-ended by an introduction and a post-screening discussion.
