Child of Empire - Electronic Press Kit
Child of Empire is an animated virtual reality (VR) docu-drama experience which immerses viewers in one of the largest forced migrations in human history: the 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan
Press Release/Long Description
Project Dastaan (داستان/दास्तान: “Story”) is a peacebuilding initiative reconnecting individuals displaced during the 1947 Partition with their ancestral villages through VR. We have conducted, filmed and edited interviews with Partition survivors across the UK, India and Pakistan in five languages. Our work has been featured in TIME, The BBC, Reuters and Elle amongst others.
The Project is generously supported by the CatchLight Foundation, Digital Catapult and Arts Council, National Geographic, The British Council, and BFI/Doc Society. We've presented at UK Parliament as a founding member of the South Asian Heritage Month Campaign lobby and various colleges across India, Pakistan and the UK.
Advisors on the Project include: Gabo Arora, William Dalrymple, Aanchal Malhotra, Anam Zakaria, Malala Yousufzai, Suroosh Alvi, Dr. Faisal Devji, Asha Easton, Dr. Kate Sullivan De Estrada, Dr. Sundas Ali, Anita Rani, Dr. Shahidul Alam, Asad J. Malik, Gayatri Parameswaran, Dr. Yasmin Khan
