But Where Are You Really From? Call Me by My Name (15*) + workshop

T A P E Collective Presents

A still from Rice & Bread

It’s an experience not uncommon within a diaspora to have your name viewed as too foreign or exotic, and subject to either whitewashing or clumsy - and sustained - mispronunciation.

Expanding on the theme, this programme will look at the wider ideas of labels and definitions of identity and heritage. 

The final screening in a three-part series presented by T A P E Collective, of programmes of short films by mixed heritage filmmakers around the themes of identity and heritage, exploring othering, belonging and the trouble of melting pots.

Dalia Al-Dujaili will lead a creative writing workshop after the screening in a casual setting. Working with prompts, attendees will have the opportunity to explore their cultural heritage and background further. 

Event running time to be confirmed. 

Please note: this screening is Hard of Hearing (HOH) captioned
