I’ve mentioned a fair few times that my current project is nearing its end and will be published soon! [date to be confirmed]
I’ve been working on a non-fiction project; So what’s it all about?
A Show Called Empire
“They say a picture paints a thousand words. So what picture does a movie paint?
From pith helmets to scarlet jackets, to tiger hunting and cigars and brandy, to the darker side of Empire, with its imperialism, its paternalism and bald faced racism, the story of the British Empire has many chapters. Chapters which have been immortalised by film-makers across the globe. So how do these films represent the British Empire in all its vastness?”
“Including discussions of well-known – and lesser-known – movies spanning from the 1940s to the present day, it details the pictures painted of empire and the awakenings of burgeoning nationalities. It contains glimpses into the changing societies as time progressed from the final days of the empire and how this has affected the movie world and how it perceives and portrays the British Empire, the rulers themselves and those they ruled over.”
