BFI India on Film presents Death and Deception as part of THRILLER season

Monday 6th November 2017

This Autumn, the BFI will embark on a suspense-filled, UK-wide season BFI THRILLER: WHO CAN YOU TRUST? Running from Friday 20 October - Sunday 31 December at BFI Southbank, online on BFI Player and at selected venues across the UK. Through October and November, BFI's INDIA ON FILM season will join forces with BFI THRILLER, screening four, contemporary Indian thrillers which offer powerful social critique and richly diverse insights into criminal worlds. These thrillers include Talvar, NH10, Sairat and Jigarthanda.

As part the British Council's UK-India Year of Culture, the BFI has been celebrating Indian film throughout 2017. Co-curated by BFI Head Curator Robin Baker, and writer and programmer Meenakshi Shedde, the BFI's INDIA ON FILM programme runs at BFI Southbank until December 2017. Season highlights have included the Special Gala Screening of Baahubali 2 and the theatrical release of Hotel Salvation (Mukti Bhavan) among other key events and screenings. Other highlights of the forthcoming BFI THRILLER season will include UK-wide re-releases of North by Northwest (Alfred Hitchcock, 1959) and The Silence of the Lambs (Jonathan Demme, 1991) and a special day-long event at BFI Southbank on Saturday 11 November - THE BIG THRILL - during, which audiences will be able to dissect the craft that goes into creating cinematic suspense, explore the nasty women of film and television, and hear from special guests from in front of and behind the camera.
