Wivelsfield Films: on Sunday July 30 will be showing Viceroy’s House (12a) with Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson and Michael Gambon . . Doors/bar open 7pm., film starts 7.30pm.
Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten, great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people. The film’s story unfolds within that great house. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite – Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi – converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. The consequences of this decision reverberate to this day.
Tickets £6.00 available from Wivelsfield Post Office, the Cock Inn or on line from wivelsfieldfilms.com
