Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles

The second annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles starts up next Thursday the 14th and runs through the 18th. As India West puts it, “The role of a woman – be she a 10th century queen, a village rape victim, a young performer in a rural circus, an upper-class Kolkata intellectual or a Pakistani widow struggling to keep her family from being destroyed by religious fundamentalism – is explored in a series of films just announced by the [IFFLA].” Tickets are available at the ArcLight Cinemas box office (6360 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood) or on the ArcLight website.
