Filmmaker Jamil Dehlavi joins curator Timothy Cooper for an on-stage interview with extensive clips from his filmography, beginning with the early experimental Towers of Silence, through to The Blood of Hussain, which resulted in his exile to the UK, where his output included Born of Fire. Cooper will also look at Immaculate Conception, made on Dehlavi’s return to Pakistan in 1988, and his later epic work Jinnah, a film that attempted to redress the previous negative portrayal of this momentous figure in Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi.
