Heat and Dust (James Ivory, 1983, 35mm, 130 mins)

An Englishwoman discovers a long-buried scandal involving her great-aunt and a decadent nawab under the British Raj, and travels to India where she embarks upon a scandalous romance of her own. This “intelligent, ambitious, substantial picture” (Peter Bradshaw) full of “wonderful sights and sounds and textures” (Roger Ebert) stars Julie Christie, Greta Scacchi, and Shashi Kapoor. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

“The World of James Ivory” presents highlights from across the seven-decade career of the acclaimed filmmaker, drawn from his personal collection of film prints donated to the archive in 2023.
