January 18: Shalom Bollywood
A celebration of the all-singing, all-dancing history of the world’s largest film industry. When Indian cinema began 100 years ago, it was taboo for Hindu and Islamic women to perform on screen, so Indian Jewish women, who were more liberal and progressive, took on female lead roles, which they then dominated for decades. Infused with music and dancing, the cheekily-told film oozes Bollywood.
