The 2017 film Anaarkali of Aarah by director Avinash Das illustrates the life of a small-town erotic folk dancer whose confrontation with a vice chancellor shows a marginalized side of society struggling with power and corruption. Anaarkali’s struggles resonate with the #MeToo movement and question stereotypes. Professor Praveen Chaudhry will provide commentary on the film, Professor Andrea Beeman will lead the audience in Bollywood dance, and samosas will be served at the Q&A.

This event is for the FIT community only.
