What does it mean to be a British Indian woman? The Evolution of the British Indian woman – an event which was screened at Kingston-Upon-Thames’ Rose Theatre in June 2013, explored the essence of a British Indian woman through the experiences of three branches of one family tree. A grandmother, who moved to the UK 30 years ago with aspirations of a new future; her daughter, a business woman, wife and mother; and a granddaughter, a British born Indian who documented her personal journey in India to explore the thread that interweaves within each generation. The event consisted of two short films and a question and answer session amongst the audience and panel members who were part of the film series.
Produced and directed by Sejal Sehmi. Filmed and edited by Kishan Shah.
