Home > Partition


A weekend of cinematic representations and responses to the events that divided India in 1947, creating first Pakistan and later Bangladesh. In the 70th year since this momentous historical event, this season is designed to enhance understanding of the events that led to Partition, as well as exploring the meanings and legacies of Partition today.

Curated by Andy Willis, Reader in Film Studies at the University of Salford, and HOME’s Senior Visiting Curator: Film.
