Fiction bleeds into biography as we find ourselves behind the closed doors of London’s cultural melting pot.
Steering us from North to South, these films chart the precarious adventure of making it in our fair capital. Below the river masculinity is tested by a simple smile, whilst faith and family harmonize in an African East End community struck by grief. In Chinatown we find masseuses with secrets, whilst elsewhere hook-ups thrive into romance in the face of HIV stigma.
With turns from Ben Aldridge (Our Girl) and Karla Crome (Misfits).
