  • Bollywood Night - Screening of 'Queen' (2013)

Sunday 31 January
Time: from 5.30pm
Zoom Meeting ID: 961 7727 9284 

Let’s celebrate Indian cinema with a screening of 'Queen', one of the highest grossing films of 2014. 'Queen' is a comedy-drama film about a young woman who has been jilted at the alter but nevertheless, decides to travel solo on her pre-booked honeymoon. Although, this film is seen as an influential feminist film, different to conventional Bollywood films, it is still culturally relevant to contemporary Indian society. The screening of 'Queen' will take place over Zoom, so join the Zoom meeting to receive a weblink to the Netflix Teleparty. Ensure you have the Teleparty extension installed onto your Chrome browser. Hosted by SRA Issy (South Towers).
