Event description

Description

Join us for our inaugural 'Film for Thought' festival where we screen films from across South Asia. Our final screening will be Neelum Films A Thin Wall.

A Thin Wall is a documentary about memory, history and the possibility of reconciliation. It focuses on the Partition of India in 1947, but derives lessons that remain urgently relevant today. Shot on both sides of the border, in India and Pakistan, A Thin Wall is a personal take on Partition rooted in stories passed down from one generation to another. It is written and directed by Mara Ahmed and co-produced by Surbhi Dewan. Both filmmakers are descendants of families torn apart by Partition. The film is also a work of art infused with original animation, music and literary writing.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion. On the panel, we will be joined by Dr Mridula Nath Chakraborty, Deputy Director of Monash Asia Institute, Dr Jim Masselos from the University of Sydney, Deborah Nixon from the University of Technology Sydney, and Ms Kimberley Layton from University of New South Wales Canberra.

Please join us for what is certainly going to be an amazing evening of thought provoking films and discussions.

And as usual it's absolutely free and nibbles will be provided!
