In the run up to the University’s week long South Asia week celebrations culminating with the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, we are delighted to welcome back Dr Piyush Roy and the launch of his film on Indian cinema: Pleasures Prejudice Pride.

This will be an evening for a discussion screening of Roy Piyush’s new documentary film – Pleasures Prejudice Pride: An Indian Way of Filmmaking (2019) – at The University of Edinburgh.

Piyush graduated with an MSc in Film Studies in 2009 at the University of Edinburgh and completed his PhD on the history of gesture in Indian film acting at the Centre for South Asian Studies.

The screening of film will be followed by a panel discussion with Dr Talat Ahmed, Co-Director of Centre for South Asian Studies and Dr David Sorfa, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies.
