Cities of Cinema: Hollywood and Bollywood

April 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Located on opposite sides of the globe, the cities of Los Angeles and Mumbai are homes to thriving international film industries known as Hollywood and Bollywood. This Dialogues seminar will compare and contrast these two industries and the cinematic traditions that have grown out of each. What has been the economic and cultural impact of these industries on their home countries, and how have their exported films influenced cultures all around the world? We’ll explore the types of films produced by each industry and learn more about the stars, studios, and songs that made these cities famous.
