Actress "Nandita Das' thought-provoking first outing as a director, Firaaq (2008) examines the impact of communal violence on human relationships." - Namrata Joshi, Outlook

FREE entry, registration is essential.

Join us for the April edition of History on Film: a free screening of the multiple award-winning film Firaaq (2008) a powerful, moving ensemble piece which offers a fictionalised account of India's 2002 Gujurat Riots.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Tarangini Sriraman, a historian who has taught courses in theories of cultural and intellectual modernity, medical humanities, and feminism and politics in India at universities both in the UK and in India. She is also interested in histories from the margins, transforming urban discourses in South Asia, migration studies, and the anthropology of the state. 

Firaaq is an incredible piece of cinema with outstanding dramatic performances and wonderful if heartbreaking storytelling. It's a film that stays with you and is not to be missed!

History on Film is a monthly film screening run by the history department at Goldsmiths. Join us on the first Wednesday evening of every month for great films from and/or about historical moments, expert panelists, and lively discussions accompanied by free popcorn.
