Description

Part of India-Pakistan-UK: Intertwined Narratives, this is the first day of three half day events to commemorate the Parition of India.

Event Schedule

Day 1: 16th August – Senate House (Room 261, Senate House, University of London, Malet St, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HU)

15:30 -16:15: Panel discussion: India-Pakistan-UK: Political vs. Personal Chaired by Dr Sara Ansari

16:15 - 16:30: Coffee Break

16:30 - 18:15: Screening of Ken McMullen’s Partition (1987)

18:15 - 19:00: Q&A with Ken McMullen chaired by Dr Varsha Panjwani

Details: Partition is based on Indo-Pakistani political writer Saadat Hasan Manto's short story in which a lunatic asylum in Pakistan becomes a mirror image of the events in the political sphere during the time of the India-Pakistan partition. In McMullen's stylized film, the actors who play inmates double up as the politicians. It is by turns dark, funny, moving, and politically astute in the current climate.
