An Indian film and music double-bill, Datta and co. will accompany the sceening of two amazing films.

The main attraction is Around India with a Movie Camera, a documentary compiled of some of the oldest surviving film footage of India taken from the BFI archives.

It includes tender shots of working elephants from a hunter-turned-conservationist, colourful painted scenes of life in French Pondicherry, and the moving sights of millions of Muslim refugees fleeing to Pakistan after partition.
