12 Books for Not Just Bollywood 2022

Our mothership, HOME Manchester, presents this year’s ‘Not Just Bollywood’ season from Sunday 25th September – Monday 3rd October 2022.

‘Not just Bollywood’ is curated by Omar Ahmed, UK–based film scholar and Rachel Hayward, HOME’s Interim Creative Director: Film. The season seeks to showcase contemporary Indian independent cinema.

This year’s season focuses on films from South India, a diverse region that brings together four major film industries – Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. South Indian cinema is arguably the most technically accomplished, influential, and cinematically in tune in all of India, demonstrating time and again a capacity for creative innovation.

To complement the season we wanted to highlight 12 top books from our list by Contemporary Indian Artists, as well as artists of Indian heritage.

For more information on our forthcoming titles and highlights, please sign up to our mailing list.
