Viceroys House

To celebrate the cinema release of Viceroy's House on 3rd March and 70 years since the independence of India and the formation of Pakistan, Into Film with Pathe have launched Empire and Independence. This inspirational, free educational resource offers strong links to the history curriculum for students aged 11-13, as well as a number of exam specifications for students aged 14-18, with additional links to citizenship and SMSC and will empower them to reflect on the consequences of partition for Britain, India and Pakistan. Using clips from the film and an inspiring video interview with the director, Gurinder Chadha, Empire and Independence will help bring to life the end of an empire and the birth of two nations in the classroom.
