This session focuses on how the British Raj impacted on the history of South Asia and how ensuing cultural and racial conflicts and hierarchies have been represented in films. A particular focus is put on comparing first person narratives, i.e. colonial amateur films, with commercial and propaganda film productions.

This talk is part of the Film and History Seminar Series: Teaching Modern South Asian History with Film and Oral History series.
