KOHIMA: An Exploration of War, Memory and Gratitude

Kohima: An Exploration of War, Memory and Gratitude

Narrated by Dame Diana Rigg, this poignant film depicts how one of the epic battles of WWII devastated a remote mountain village in North East India, and how sixty years later British veterans resolved to recognise a debt of honour to the Naga people who had fought alongside them.  The film was officially selected by the 8th Monaco Charity Film Festival in 2013. 

A haunting film but filled with redemption.  It tells an incredible story of heroism and sacrifice and should be seen by as wide an audience as possible.” 

Fergal Keane OBE, BBC Foreign Correspondent
