James Ivory’s drama, written by regular collaborator Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, is loosely based on the real-life adventures of a traveling theatre company in towns across India in the 1950s, at a time when the popularity of Bollywood cinema was on the rise. The screening will be presented by the South Asian Cinema Foundation as part of their Merchant-Ivory Heritage Films Project.
