This event has ended.

Following on the success of MoMA's 2007 India Now exhibition, The New India presents sixteen contemporary Indian feature and short-length films, including eight New York theatrical premieres. The selection captures the astonishing range of fiction and documentary styles and genres in Indian cinema today. Among the celebrated actors and directors who will present their films are Naseeruddin Shah, Nandita Das, Abhay Deol, and the Academy Award–winning documentarian Megan Mylan. "The New India" opens with the New York premiere of Megan Doneman’s "Yes Madam, Sir," a riveting portrait, narrated by Helen Mirren, of one of India’s most inspiring and controversial public figures, Kiran Bedi. Both Doneman and Bedi will introduce the opening-night screening.
