Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Boo’s nonfiction masterpiece, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, hits the big screen in a live streamed National Theatre production directed by Rufus Norris. Peek behind the curtain of Mumbai’s luxury travel industry to discover the ambitions of a bevy of slum dwellers: From garbage-trading homemaker Zehrunisa to scholarly Manju to scheming thieves Kalu and Asha, the powerful interdependence of community is revealed.

Sunday 3/29. $10.50-14.50, 7pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
