Gorge at Kerala Biryani Festival

They say biryani was brought to Thalassery, a commercial city on the Malabar Coast, by Arab traders who frequented the coast centuries ago. Over time, the locals not only adapted but also mastered the recipe to suit their palate, resulting in the Thalassary Biryani as we know of today. Chef Sara Jacob Nair has curated a menu with some of her favourite versions of local biryanis from Thalassery, Kannur, and Trivandrum, apart from her own trademark home-style Pothichoru biryani.

Documentary screening – Till Death Do Us Part

The NCPA Presentation in collaboration with Cinema Collective is hosting a screening of the documentary Till Death Do Us Part. The film written and directed by Insia Dariwala begins with establishing the Indian woman’s perception of their husbands and marriage, and the deadly price they pay for treating marriage as the only reason for their existence.

The 60-minute English/Telugu documentary also looks at pain as the central element that bonds these survivors together, and it is that very pain that compels the protagonist to take it upon herself and ascertain that no other woman should ever go through such horrifying violence.
