3RD I—The Jewish Leading Ladies of Indian Cinema

Time to mix it up, ladies and gentlemen. In conjunction with the Jewish Community Center, 3rd i presents a multi-media panel discussion with documentarian Eric Molinsky, Professor Deborah Stein and 3rd i's own Anuj Vaidya, who will bring us back to the era of Indian silent cinema when many of its leading ladies were Jewish, Parsi, Anglo-Indian and Australian (Remember Fearless Nadia!). Gain insight into a little known chapter of Bollywood and find out how these women became the "go-to girls" for leading female roles in the 1920s, 30s, and beyond.

Where: Jewish Community Center of San Francisco (JCCSF), 3200 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94118
