A Throw of Dice
£15.00 (£13.00 concessions)
India, 1929, 74 minutes, certificate PG
Silent film with live score
A box office smash in 1929, this lavishly romantic silent film tells the story of rival Indian kings - one good, one bad - who fall in love with the same woman. Based on an episode from The Mahabarata and filmed in India with ten thousand extras, one thousand horses, fifty elephants, and an all-Indian cast, A Throw of Dice rivals Cecil B De Mille for screen spectacle.
Young Indian pianist Utsav Lal, whose innovative piano renditions of Hindustani ragas have been acclaimed by audiences at Carnegie Hall, Southbank Centre and around the world, will perform a unique, improvised live score.
