'Shiraz' tells the love story of the 17th century princess who inspired the construction of the Taj Mahal.
For an audience, the appeal of 'Shiraz' is the extreme rarity of a sophisticated silent feature film made outside the major producing nations of the West, the gorgeous settings and costumes and
the glories of the spectacular fort at Agra and of course the iconic Taj Mahal, a central character here in its own right.
The tour will be made possible with the kind support of Qadir Ali Baig Theatre Foundation in Hyderabad as part of the Qadir Ali Baig Theatre Festival 2017 and Sangit Kala Mandir in Kolkata.
The screening of the film will be specially accompanied by a performance by Anoushka Shankar and her eight-piece ensemble of musicians using Indian and western instruments.
