The Rebel Queen reveals the forgotten history of Maharani Jindan Kaur: the firebrand female leader who stood up against an Empire.
Wife of one Maharajah and mother of another, Jindan Kaur was the last Sikh ruler of Lahore whose life is almost unbelievable. Forcibly separated from her son, imprisoned by the British, escaping and travelling hundreds of miles to safety, she led two wars against the British and refused to cooperate right up to the end of her rebellious life.
World experts and commentators along with rare archival images reveal the triumphant and tragic story of this fearless challenger to British Empire.
The film will be followed by a Q&A with the director, Michael Singh, and historian and author, Christy Campbell, author of The Maharajah’s Box.
