About this Event

This documentary reflects on themes of loss, discovery, courage, and often success, broadly highlighting the contribution of the South Asian community on the economic and cultural diversity of the region.

Significant changes in the Commonwealth Act and key shifts in global politics during the late fifties, sixties and seventies impacted hugely on migrants already resident in the UK, as well those wanting to move here. Many South Asians sought new homes in Britain, compelled to relocate after political events in Africa.

This project was made possible thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

There are two screenings of the film at 6pm and 7.30pm

Tickets FREE but pre-booking required via Eventbrite

Enjoy a cup of complimentary chai provided by Dishoom with the screening! Dishoom are supporting the event.
