This coming Monday, 25 October, Hyde Park Picture House presents TAPE Collective: The Good Immigrant at LUU. Presented by T A P E Collective, it’s the first in a three-part series of programmes of short films by mixed heritage filmmakers, around the themes of identity and heritage, exploring othering, belonging and the trouble of melting pots.
UNISON University of Leeds has purchased 10 tickets for members—if you’re interested in a free viewing, email C.hunter-Green@leeds.ac.uk with your membership number.
The first programme, The Good Immigrant, explores the ‘good immigrant’ trope experienced by refugees and children of immigrants, where acceptance is afforded to those deemed best behaved. The films in the programme offer a look at shaping an identity beyond labels and emergence from generational and ancestral trauma. A panel discussion will follow the screening to explore the overall experience of working with personal themes of identity and belonging, as well as the process.
The films are HOH captioned and the panel is signed live in BSL. Follow the link above for descriptions of each short film.
