Mumbai Gallery Weekend (MGW) began in 2012 as a collaborative initiative by the city’s leading contemporary art galleries. The aim was to inject fresh energy into the art scene in Mumbai. This art-focused weekend has become one of the most valuable fixtures in Mumbai’s cultural calendar.

Alliance Française de Bombay will be participating for the first time in Mumbai Gallery Weekend by screening two documentaries in partnership with the French Institute in India.

Fifi hurle de joie by Mitra Farahani (96′) 

A documentary on provocative artist Bahman Mohassess, the so-called “Persian Picasso”, whose acclaimed paintings and sculptures dominated pre-revolutionary Iran.

Subtitled in English | Free and open to everyone | No registration needed
