This screening has reached its registration capacity.
Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch The White Tiger in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with writer/director/producer Ramin Bahrani is included as part of this screening experience.
Balram Halwai (Adarsh Gourav) narrates his epic and darkly humorous rise from poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India. Cunning and ambitious, our young hero jockeys his way into becoming a driver for Ashok (Rajkummar Rao) and Pinky (Priyanka Chopra Jonas), who have just returned from America. Society has trained Balram to be one thing — a servant — so he makes himself indispensable to his rich masters. But after a night of betrayal, he realizes the corrupt lengths they will go to trap him and save themselves. On the verge of losing everything, Balram rebels against a rigged and unequal system to rise up and become a new kind of master. Based on the New York Times bestseller and 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel.
The White Tiger is available on Netflix on January 22.
