Relaxed Screening: Viceroy’s House


Relaxed Screening: Viceroy’s House

Relaxed Screening
Thursday 6th April 2017

In Relaxed Film screenings we understand that people may want to talk during the film, walk around or leave the cinema - the lights are left on low in the cinema to make that easier for you. Come early and enjoy a free hot drink and biscuits before the film!

Everyone is welcome to these screenings, but the cinema environment is subtly altered to be friendly for people living with Autism and Dementia and their family, friends and carers.

The Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. 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. 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. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day. The film is both epic and intimate and deeply personal to Chadha.
Dir. Gurinder Chadha, UK, 2016, 106 mins.
Cast. Gillian Anderson, Hugh Bonneville, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi.
