INDIAN INDEPENDENCE DRAMA TO SCREEN AT CASULA

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre May Sydney Film Festival screening announced!

The true story of the final months of British rule in India will be told at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (CPAC) when Viceroy’s House, a film by iconic British director Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) screens on Sunday 14 May at 11.00am, ahead of its national theatrical release (18 May).

Selected by Sydney Film Festival as part of the Festival’s monthly Casula screenings, the film follows British India’s transition to independence and stars Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Gillian Anderson (The X-Files, The Fall) and Michael Gambon (the Harry Potter franchise).

“Viceroy’s House is an epic tale of the end of British rule in India, the story of the last Viceroy, Mountbatten, and his family, and of the people caught up in the turmoil of the time. The film is also a deeply personal one for the director, whose own family was affected by the tragic events that unfolded during the Partition,” said Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley.

“Casula Powerhouse is looking forward to local audiences being among the first to see this historically significant film. To celebrate Mother’s Day, CPAC’s new Head Chef Federico Rekowski has planned a special menu at Bellbird. Guests can look forward to High Tea, with a glass of sparkling after the screening. Make sure to book as the screening is expected to be popular”, said CPAC Acting Director Craig Donarski.

“We’re very pleased that the partnership with Sydney Film Festival and CPAC continues to deliver high-quality cinema to the people of Liverpool. Not only are we delivering ground-breaking cinema to the local community, we are encouraging social cohesion and providing an opportunity for families and communities to come together over a common love of film,” said Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller.
