T A P E launched the season with a week-long series of online events and film programmes designed to spark debate around themes of identity and heritage.
Catch up on conversations with filmmakers, browse the But Where Are You Really From? zine or watch a specially curated video essay looking at names, mother tongue and ‘the good immigrant’ trope in cinema and TV.
Closing the online takeover and BFI Southbank season on 30 July is Culture Shock: Short Film Programme, a programme of short films selected from submissions responding to the theme of ‘But Where Are You Really From?’ co-presented with UNDR LNDN.
