WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It took only five weeks for the British to draw borders on a map and seal the fate of millions and the impact still continues. 5 Weeks explores multiple narratives that form the silenced history of the partition of India in 1947.
Inspired by real life events, interviews and fiction, 5 Weeks weaves together multiple strands of stories of people of different faiths and cultures, bringing to life those forced to flee what they once called home, the pressures to choose allegiance, and the desperate search for compassion in a time when humanity hung in the balance.
