Ever wondered what librarians do? In this series of monthly talks, find out what makes our librarians tick as they share highlights of their work.

Do we feint fear of monsters because we are attracted to the ones outside or detest the ones within?

With this provocative question, join Associate Librarian Dilip Kumar to dissect the conventions of horror created by popular literature & films through the window of Indian cinematic demons.

By diving into the wells of Sadako, the whistle and bells that restrain Annabelle to Bella’s obsession with milk faced bat(d) boy Edwards, to sewer dwelling clowns who are not joking about It, to exposing disbelieving exorcists who are not Constantine, to Kanchana's saffron sari, we uncover the opportunities grasped and lost in Indian Cinema to translate demons of centuries of myth into a strong film identity.

Admission is free and registration is required.
