Late Night Talk: The Art of Bollywood

Friday, September 20, 9:00 p.m.

Dr. Lalitha Gopalan, Associate Professor in the Department of Radio-Television-Film at UT Austin, will talk about the history of Bollywood and the eye-catching posters that have always accompanied Bollywood films. For generations, film posters for Bollywood productions were painstakingly made by artists and distributed throughout city streets. Now the artistry of poster painting by hand is giving way to printing and only a few of these artists remain in business. Dr. Gopalan will discuss the defining features of the Bollywood film poster and how the posters are designed to convey the drama of the films they promote.
