Discovering India at MAMI — five unique films

Curated by Uma da Cunha, the Discovering India section at the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star spotlights Indian Cinema’s universal reach in globalised, changing landscapes. This section showcases international films made by resident Indians (‘Roam Rome Mein’), or films by filmmakers of Indian origin living elsewhere (‘The Last Color, ‘The Illegal’, ‘Aadhar’), looking back to their remembered homeland, as well as films by international directors that connect with India, either in theme, locale, or by featuring the country’s film talent (‘Sun’).
