One of London's cultural highlights 'The Floating Cinema' presents a September Saturday night with a difference.
Pop on a jumper and bring your own refreshments to a free outdoor screening of this bollywood gem: ZUBEIDAA!
With drops -in welcome on the night, Mile End's relaxed park setting is just perfect for this all-singing, all-dancing Bollywood spectacle.
Zubeidaa combines with Benegal’s characteristic look at women’s conflicted role in changing society.
Don’t miss this modern Indian classic!
Shyam Benegal, acclaimed for his prolific contributions to India’s New Cinema tradition, makes his first foray into Bollywood with the real-life story of Zubeida Begum, scriptwriter Mohammed Khalid’s mother, the film tells the story of a promising young Indian film star, whose career is cut short at the will of her father.
Zubeidaa is married off and bears a child but refuses to accept a fate of domestic drudgery.
Can the Maharaja Prince Charming help her find happiness?
Join us in Mile End Park for the perfect wrapping up of this (almost) Indian Summer and a warm welcome to Autumn!
Food and drink will be welcome but you can bring your own. Free popcorn and blankets available to hire.
The Floating Cinema boat will be moored closeby - with the pop-up outdoor screen bringing you all the joy of this film - the banks of the canal/Mile End Park.
