Event description

Description

The City Circle presents a series of independent British documentaries based on the topics of integration, immigration, race and identity.

A fascinating and intimate insight into the lives of people who have come to London from afar in order to seek a better life and struggled to make the city their home.

There's a young Irish woman who dreams of becoming a singer, who takes a job pulling pints in Cricklewood, serving the generations of Irish people who came over before her; a lonely Irish ex construction worker loosing his battle to booze; a man from Kashmir working in a hotel, trying to earn enough money so his wife can join him; an elderly Jewish woman who fled Vienna when Hitler was in power; and a glamorous retired German air stewardess living with her estranged husband.

Fused with wonderful moments of humour and equally heartbreaking moments where broken dreams are revealed, The Road: A Story of Life and Death is a study of immigration that manages to be highly affecting, whilst avoiding being polemical or didactic.

The film screening will be followed by a Q&A with the documentary Director Marc Isaacs.
