SUNDAY 29 SEPTEMBER, 15.30, ST JOHN'S CHURCH
A gem of Indian cinema regularly ranked amongst film history's greats, Guru Dutt’s 1957 Pyaasa is a story for the ages, following Dutt himself in the role of struggling poet negotiating a world too harsh for love and humanity.
With an iconic score by S.D Burman, this is an all too rare opportunity to see a defining classic of Hindi cinema’s golden age.
See this film in a setting very much in the memory of Waltham Forest, reviving the Asian cinema clubs of the '70s where weekly space was created for those in the community to come together. Programmed by researcher and artist Hassan Vawda.
