7047: Words on Water

August 19 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC+0

£5

Frank Brazil presents three events marking 70 years of the partition of India, and the end of 200 years of British occupation. The partition created about 15 million refugees and over 1 million people are thought to have died. Many families of refugees have settled in east London, this small programme is in recognition of these communities. 

“WORDS ON WATER”
Director & writer Sanjay Kak,
India, 2002, 84 minutes, Hindi with English subtitles.+ audience discussion

Since 1979, people of the Narmada Valley in central India have resisted a series of massive dams on their river, and in their struggle have exposed the deceptive heart of India’s development politics. Words on Water is about a sustained non-violent resistance, an almost joyous defiance, which empowers people as they struggle for their rights, yet saves them from the ultimate humiliation of violence. In July 2017 the Narmada dam is due to be inaugurated by the Indian government.
