I’ve joined forces with the amazing filmmaker Suki Mok and we’ve made a short film provisionally titled ‘Where Are They From? Charting the journeys of four London-based artists from East Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa and India we explore the stories behind each journey, life in their hometowns and if their backgrounds have inspired creative work. Featuring guest interviewees: composer/Bhangra pioneer Kuljit Bhamra, award-winning novelist/filmmaker Xiaolu Guo, educator/bassist Svetlana Vassileva and Cameroonian-British artist Shiri Achu.
Our first screening is on Saturday 19th July at Rich Mix at 7pm – ours will be one of the first acts shown on the big screen. There’ll also be an opportunity to tell us and film your story which we will show at during the aftershow party that evening.
Should be a fun evening with lots of other exciting artists to check out including dance, music, poetry and puppetry. More info here. Tickets are mere fiver! Hope to see you there! x
Another chance to catch this short – Thurs 27 November at TriSpace Shorts @ TriSpace Gallery The Biscuit Factory, Drummond Road London SE16 4DG 7pm start with Q&A after each film.
PS here are some film screenshots!
