‘Freedom Movement and Cinema’ organised by the Central Bureau of Communication (CBC) at IFFI is attracting people with its unique immersive experience.

The multi-media digital exhibition at the Campal Football Ground was inaugurated today by the Union Minister for Information & Broadcasting Anurag Singh Thakur.

The Minister said the Exhibition tells the complete story of India’s Freedom struggle using many technological innovations. It is an inspiration for everyone who visits and particularly for the students, who can gain so much of information about our inspiring leaders”.

The Exhibition conceived by CBC team under the overarching theme of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ sports a facade in the form of camera- lens.

As one enters the Exhibition hall, a large 12 x 10 feet LED screen displays clips of the popular Doordarshan series ‘Swaraj’ which profiles life and contributions of various freedom fighters against colonial rule.

Moving forward, rare footages related to the Freedom Movement covering 1857 War of Independence, Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Kalapaani, Bhagat Singh and Chandrashekhar Azad are displayed. Most of these footages have been sourced from the rich archive of the Films Division.

A Digital Flip-book displays Chronological journey of Indian Freedom Struggle in the form of posters curated by CBC. Songs which became the voice of freedom struggle can be listened to, even as the adjacent Sound Shower lets you listen to the speeches of the Indian Independence leaders.

Kadam Badhaaye Ja’-March with Netaji is an Augmented Reality experience, where one can March with India’s inspirational leader in Azad Hind Fauz uniform and get his or her image captured.

An Immersive Theatre on 1857 War of Independence is a unique experience that is to be seen and felt, even as the virtual reality set helps you witness the Kakori Train Action in a new way.

The CBC Exhibition also displays the Azadi Quest game and the newly launched Netflix animation series on freedom fighters.

The display part of Exhibition ends with the Discovery’s Journey of India, which tells the story of how the nation has progressed in multi- dimensional fields.

At the Centre of the Exhibition Hall is the symbolic Shahidi Kuan or Martyr’s Well of Jalianwala Bagh, where one can pay tributes to all the well-known and unsung heroes of India’s Freedom Struggle.
