'Look East!' Contemporary Asian Films Series

'Look East!' Contemporary Asian Films Series

Stolen Life, dir. Li Shaohong. China, 2005. Screens Aug. 20. (Global Film Initiative)

There is a new curiosity in Mumbai. And the increasing adventurousness of our film viewing audiences is beginning to spawn a new market. While the occasional Asian film was available to a niche audience in the film festival circuit, we believe the time is right to bring Asian films to the mainstream multiplex audience in Indian metropolitan cities.

To address this growing new interest in cinema from regions outside India and the US, Asia Society India Centre brings you regular film screenings in NCPA with Look East!

Presented in partnership with The Global Film Initiative and India International Centre.

Location:
Main Auditorium, India International Centre
40 Max Mueller Bhavan, New Delhi

All films subtitled in English.
