Britain on Film: South Asian Britain

Saturday 13th October 2018

In the 70th anniversary year of Partition and Indian Independence, explore the history of Britain’s South Asian population with our latest Britain on Film programme weaving together archive footage from across the UK throughout the 20th century and touching on disparate communities originally from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Showing life before and after British rule in South Asia, this compelling collection illustrates how the relationship between Britain and the region was made inextricable by Empire; its dissolution, and often painful legacy – and ultimately, how the South Asian diaspora in the United Kingdom has so gloriously and meaningfully enriched life in this country.
