In this event in our programme. we look at the experience of the soldiers from across the world who fought and died in the armies of WW1. David Olusoga‘s recent documentary The World’s War challenged perceptions of WW1 with the stories of the millions of Indian, African and Asian troops who fought and died alongside white European troops on the western front and elsewhere. We will show some of this film and writer-director Dominic Rai will bring to life the experiences of Indian soldiers in Flanders, popularised in the acclaimed novel Across the Black Waters by Mulk Raj Anand.
