Baghdadis in Bollywood

4 May 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Tuesday 4 May, 7:30 pm UK time

Although the smallest of India’s minorities, Jews played as important a role in  the world’s largest film industry, Bollywood. Almost all of India’s earliest silent movie stars were female Baghdadi Jews: Salochana, Miss Rose, Pramila and Nadira. Our lecturer Kenneth X Robbins is a psychiatrist, collector of south Asian art, and author of Western Jews in India: From the Fifteenth Century to the Present. Recording here.
