Actions and Detail Panel
Film screening: All White In Barking
Fri 12 May 2017, 20:30 – 22:30 BST
The City Circle presents a series of independent British documentaries based on the topics of integration, immigration, race and identity.
This compassionate and illuminating documentary probes the attitudes of Barking's white residents toward their new immigrant neighbours, characterised by unexamined (and often comic) prejudices about their dress, religious beliefs, and strange cooking smells. Isaacs is an unseen, but prominent, presence, questioning prejudices and prying at preconceptions with remarkable results to produce a vivid picture of the attitudes and preconceptions at the heart of an increasingly multicultural Britain.
Q&A with the Director, Marc Isaacs, will be held following the screening of The road: A story of life and death on Friday 19 May 2017.
