Year Zero: Black Country – India Film Screening (12A)
Sun 8th October 4:00pm
Billy Dosanjh’s documentary looks at the thousands of economic migrants from the former colonies who came to the railway town of Smethwick in the industrial heartlands of England, in search of a promised land. Using testimonies collected from residents in Smethwick and Oldbury, woven with archive newsreel and documentary footage, the film captures the sensations of this epic upheaval. Hear Billy talk about his work at a related event on 9 October at Showroom Cinema.
