Saturday November 30, 2019

We are invited by British Screens, for a viewing of the closing films of the documentary film festival.

Venue :
Bibliothèque Carré d’Art, Jean Bousquet, Grand Auditorium

Time : 6.30 pm

Cost : free


Films shown :
“Just a T-shirt”,   Duration: 6mn
By Jeremy Herring, performed by Meera Syal. It is one of the “Brexit shorts”, a series of short films produced by the Headlong Theater Company and The Guardian.   

“I’m British but…” by Gurinder Chadha (1989)   Duration: 30mn
“Pati voted “leave” because of the benefit scroungers who give good immigrants like her a bad name. She then gets a brutal reality check…
A fascinating documentary on what it meant to be a young British Asian in the 1980s. The young people interviewed are from across the UK; the common thread is that they see it as home, but their differing views about what being Asian and British means for them are underscored by the beats of Bhangra and Bangla music. Mixing archival footage with present day street scenes of Asians in England, this film chronicles the role of race and cultural identity in the formation of modern day British society. I'm British but... is an engaging critique of nationalisms of any sort and a celebration of cultural diversity and hybridity."
     
The viewing will be followed by a discussion animated by Isabelle Cases (Vice-President of British Screens) and Bernard Raynaud (President of British Screens)

Note:
Above ground parking is free in Nîmes from 7pm onwards. As there is half an hour of free parking anyway, if you arrive in Nîmes at 6, you will just have to pay a euro or so. Otherwise you can park at the Maison Carrée parking-lot, but it is more expensive.
