About this event

Look back at the events of 1947 through this illuminating documentary.

Children of Partition: An Oral History of Pothoharis is a deep focus on how a community was affected by Partition and their subsequent migration to the UK. The film focuses on the Pothohar region of West Punjab and how this community’s heritage and culture has been nurtured and cultivated by the generation who came to Britain. This project has been supported by the Heritage Fund and The May Fair Hotel.

Prior to the screening, join us for a lecture by economist and former Deputy Chair Planning Commission of India, Montek Singh Ahluwalia. We will be exploiting how India is overcoming the challenges to becoming a five trillion-dollar economy.

Presented by Tongues On Fire
