India in Film: Slumdog Millionaire at Merrill Memorial Library (Yarmouth)
September 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
The Camden Conference will be held February 16-18, 2024, and, in support of this year’s topic “INDIA: Rising Ambitions, Challenges at Home” Merrill Memorial library will be collaborating with The Camden Conference to offer several programs this fall. As part of that effort, the Merrill Film Society will be exhibiting and discussing a slate of films that relate to India.
Sept. 13 @ 7 pm, in-person at MML: Slumdog Millionaire
Our first look at “India on film” will be Danny Boyle’s 2008 Best Picture Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire. Controversial for its depiction of poverty in India (among other topics), the film stars Dev Patel as a young man who is arrested under suspicion of cheating on Who Wants to Be A Millionaire. The man must convince the police of his innocence by explaining how he knew each answer, and, as a result, he takes them and us on a tour of his life story. Come join us, watch, and discuss!
