WHOSE HOMELAND? A PROGRAMME OF CHINESE DIASPORA STORIES [U]
BOOK TICKETS — £10
Tue, 27 Sep
Runtime: 103 mins
As part of this year’s East and South East Asian Heritage month, Sine Screen and ScousESEA present Whose Homeland? — a programme of diasporic stories created by Chinese and Chinese mixed heritage filmmakers.
Diverse in visual language, these films incorporate documentary footage, archive, home-video, reenactments, montage and digital animation to offer a multilayered reflection on the history and experience of the Chinese diaspora. From the lost Chinatown of San Francisco to an immigrant family in Alberta, Canada, the programme explores international narratives, together with reflections on the changing British-Chinese cultural identities across generations.
The screening will begin with a 15 minute introduction from organisers. Attendees are invited to stay post-screening for informal networking and conversation.
This film screening is presented by Sine Screen & ScousESEA.
