Focus On Raj Kapoor
This February through March ACMI presents Focus On: Raj Kapoor, highlighting the late actor, director and producer who revolutionised Indian cinema.
The extensive career retrospective will feature several new 35mm prints, alongside the reveal of an onscreen persona inspired by the smirk and swagger of Clark Gable. Helping to set the template for Bollywood films of today, Kapoor's debut as a producer started back in 1948 with Fire (Aag). Following on only a year later was Kapoor's megahit Monsoon (Barsaat).
Focus On: Raj Kapoor will screen from Friday February 17 - Wednesday March 14 at ACMI.
