Southall on Film: ScreeningDate: Fri 04 May 2018
Time: 3:30pm -7pm
Here's an opportunity to discover more about Southall’s South Asian community and their relationship to film.
MADE is a film-making charity that has been awarded heritage lottery funding, which allows them to support young Londoners to produce multimedia outputs.
These include recording oral histories, short films on 16mm film and a documentary, that explores the relationship of Southall’s South Asian immigrant experience and the evolution of film consumption.
They are hosting an event that may be of interest to you. On 4th May 2018 they are hosting a free screening at the BFI Southbank called Southall On Film. The event dedicated to showcasing the history of Southall’s South Asian community and their relationship to film.
Blaise Singh, Project Manager, said: "This was a fantastic opportunity for young people to conduct local history research and develop skills to enable them to produce heritage materials that appeal to their generation."
In a time where the rise of right-wing politics sees Brexit and Donald Trump triumph, MADE recognises the importance of celebrating the migrant experience in order to increase understanding between London’s diverse communities.
This event is open to the public.
