This inaugural edition of the Department of Film’s brand new World Cinema Conversations shines a light on Indo-British film collaborations in the early 20th century. London-based South Asian Cinema Foundation (SACF) explores cinematic connections between the two nations, through their Hidden Heritage research project and path-breaking documentary film - East Meets West: Indo-British Cinematic Encounters. This seminar and screening event focuses on the film’s uncovering of new material on well-known stars of the era such as Sabu and Merle Oberon. Building cross-cultural conversations, the seminar will reveal compelling and hitherto unknown collaborations between the British and South Asian filmmaking sectors.
