Zeminder Biswambhar Roy belonged to a lineage of feudal system hoary with tradition and wealth, but all that was left disappeared in an ocean of debt. Clinging to his fading aristocratic way of life, Biswambhar hosts one last concert in his cherished music room.

7.00pm | Performance by Malhaar

The week-long film programme comes to a crescendo with a closing performance by Dubai-based music academy Malhaar following the final screening of Satyajit Ray’s Jalsaghar (The Music Room). The performance draws its cues from the film programme A Supplementary Country Called Cinema.

The performance is included with tickets for the day's screening of Jalsaghar / The Music Room.
