Before Midnight

A Portrait of India on Film, 1899-1947


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

This programme of highlights from the BFI's unparalleled collection of early films of India offers an extraordinary portrait of how lives - both Indian and British - were led across the Subcontinent before Independence.

Taking us on a journey from Lahore to Darjeeling and beyond, the films include the epic pageantry of the 1911 Delhi Durbar, the home movies of the Maharajah of Jodhpur, the Raj at play during the Calcutta 'season' and footage of Gandhi, filmed by his great nephew, Kanu.

(Various directors | 1899-1947 | 86 mins)
