In recent times, Indian “Bollywood” films have been growing in popularity, appearing in international film festivals and receiving accolades all over the world.
Now at the ICC, we present a special showing of “PK”, the worldwide 100 million yen blockbuster film from the director and star of India’s 2009 superhit “3 Idiots”.
Having experienced a devastating heartbreak while studying abroad in Belgium Jaggu returns to India, where she works as a TV reporter.
One day, she sees a strange man on the metro wearing a bright yellow helmet, carrying a boom box and handing out leaflets about…religion?
The leaflets talk about “the missing gods”. Intrigued, Jaggu follows the man and learns he is called “PK”.
“Who is this man? Why is he looking for the gods?”
However the things she hears from “PK” are astonishing and make her question all that she has known up to now.
Constantly surprised by his strange view of the world and lack of common sense, Jaggu and “PK” are drawn into a huge controversy and scandal that shakes the whole of India.
With razor sharp wit that cuts away at prejudice and religious issues and warmth that shows the true power of love and friendship.
This gem of a drama is sure to pierce the heart of all those who have felt lost in life and make you cry tears of laughter and sadness.
After the screening there will be a special talk by a popular Asian cinema professional for all students.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity, join us for “PK”!
