A Throw of Dice- Festival of Arts and Humanities/ Sheffield

A Throw of Dice (1929) dir­ec­ted by Franz Osten and Himansu Rai is a tri­umph of early Bol­ly­wood cinema. Inspired by parts of the Indian sanskrit epic the Mahabharata, this sump­tu­ously filmed tale of love and hazard sees two rival kings vie for the love of one woman over a game of chance. 

Shef­field Uni­ver­sity Con­certs and Jazz North present Unfurl: an ensemble whose music expands across con­tin­ents, com­bin­ing Indian ragas, fla­menco and Arabic music with impro­visa­tion to create an ori­gin­al sound ran­ging from the dra­mat­ic to the sub­lime. They are joined by Sit­ar­ist Jas­deep Singh Degun.
