DESIblitz Q&A and Film Highlights


Over the past 8 months a team of journalists and filmmakers from DESIblitz have been collecting personal stories from residents across Birmingham and the Black Country, capturing the real -life memories of those affected by the events of partition who made their new homes here.

On the anniversary of the creation of Pakistan as an independent country, join us for a special screening with question and answer session with those featured in the documentary.

Moment worthy stories captured along with archive footage of events recorded at the time have been compiled into a specially edited film being screened at Birmingham’s Ikon gallery between August 8th and 20th, 2017.

Please join us for a very special Q&A and short film screening, taking place on the 70th anniversary of the eve of partition, and featuring four of the people who share their stories for this incredible Oral History project.
