1947: Brexit India

Synopsis : The documentary examines how the British ruled India for 200 years with a minimal population, yet becoming the world’s superpower. Subsequently, Lord Mountbatten's abrupt decision to split India into two parts in 1947 led to catastrophic consequences, with one million deaths and 20 million displaced. In the film, experts from Britain, West Indies, Pakistan, and India discuss the influence of United States and Canada on Britain's decolonization and India's path to independence along with its emergence as a new global superpower.
