Partition & War and Peace (Second run DVD) 12

£10.99

Product description

PARTITION

The tumultuous events surrounding the sub-continent's partition in 1947 into India and Pakistan are re-imagined in Ken McMullen's complex and visually striking film. A lunatic asylum in Lahore provides a mirror image of the political and social events happening in the outside world. The same actors are used for both inmates and rulers. This powerful film was made 40 years after partition by artist and director, Ken McMullen, adapted in collaboration with Tariq Ali from the short story, 'Toba Tek Singh', by acclaimed Urdu writer, Sadaat Hasan Manto.

WAR AND PEACE

Anand Patwardhan directs this documentary exploring the militarisation of his native India since the death of peace activist Mahatma Gandhi. Since Gandhi's assassination in 1948, the country has joined the global race to arms along with their nuclear-armed and hostile neighbour Pakistan. Following the country's five nuclear tests in 1998, after which they were declared a fully fledged nuclear state, Patwardhan interviews some of the country's citizens to provide an overview of the cost of nuclear weapons to its population. To do so, he seeks out those living around the atomic testing sites and witnesses the poverty that some have to endure as part of the sacrifice of being a nuclear superpower and in the name of national pride. He also examines the widespread government propaganda in place to keep the population on side despite the protestations aimed at the country from survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings.
