West Is West + Q and A

The cast and creative team behind West is West (2010) talk to host Sarfraz Manzoor at a preview of the film at BFI Southbank, with guests including Leslee Udwin (Producer), Ayub Khan-Din (Creator/Writer), Andy DeEmmony (Director), Om Puri (Actor), Aqib Khan (Actor) and Linda Bassett (Actor). Manzoor asks Khan-Din about what spurred him to write the second part of the trilogy and DeEmmony talks about the daunting prospect of filming the sequel to East is East (1999 Dir Damien O'Donnell). Both Udwin and Puri describe the deeper layering in the sequel and Bassett considers language barriers between George Khan's wives in the film and mentions that not everything is lost in translation.
