: Geoghegan collection
: Eric Geoghegan was born in July, 1903. In 1924 Geoghegan sailed to India to work for BAT (British American Tobacco), a British owned multinational company, the largest traders of tobacco in the world at that time. His career led him to Mandalay and Rangoon prior to 1936; this is where the majority of his film collection is shot. This collection of films consists mainly of Geoghegan's various encounters within Burma. He documents the social lives of the British, as well as the Burmese locals, in their engagement with both traditional culture and their means of living and labour.
