Pyaasa and introduction

Possibly one of the most remarkable transpositions of poetry on screen” (Olivier Assayas). An immortal classic, director/star Guru Dutt’s soulful, romantic PYAASA is a sumptuous tale of a young poet’s ambitions. Starkly photographed in swoon-worthy black and white, it is easy to see why Dutt is considered one of the true masters of Indian cinema.

Ruth Maxey from the University of Nottingham will introduce this screening.
