GALLANT HEARTS + LIVE ACCOMPANIMENT

January 14 @ 14:00 - 16:30

NOW SHOWING: GALLANT HEART screens at BFI (14 JAN).

BFI presents: One of very few surviving Indian silents, GALLANT HEARTS has everything from a Zorro-like heroine to storybook settings.

Continuing the BFI’s India on Film season from 2017, GALLANT HEARTS shows the influence of Hollywood and particularly Douglas Fairbanks on the developing Indian film industry. Set in a storybook India, which allowed disparate Indian audiences to enjoy this adventure film, it features a spirited Zorro-like heroine and a hero straight out of THE THIEF OF BAGHDAD.

Accompaniment is by musicians Stephen Horne and Jeevan Singh.
