Open-air film screening on National Theatre flytower.
With its cast of thousands (including elephants and tigers), this classic of Indian silent cinema is an epic to rival those of Cecil B. DeMille.
Shot on location in the palaces and countryside of Rajasthan and inspired by an episode from the Mahabharata, A Throw of Dice is both a passionate love story and a warning tale about the addictive power of gambling...
