Into the Sc(re)enery: Bollywood Locations and Docu-diaspora
Abstract:In this essay, I draw connections between the cinematic experience and travel discourses, exploring the ways contemporary popular Hindi films acknowledge a global audience through Bollywood’s locations and dislocations. In my examination of representations of tourism, pilgrimage, and immigration, I focus on key examples from contemporary Bollywood-related tourist industry initiatives; diasporic narrative trajectories and location use in recent hit films; and documentations of Bollywood fantasy-fueled “passages” to India.
