I'm British, But...

UK, 1989 (MIFF 1990, Documentary)

Director: Gurinder Chadha

Pump up the Bhangra! Using Bhangra music and the testimonies of sons and daughters of Asian Brits, the film uncovers a defiant popular culture - a synthesis - part Asian, part British.

"We cannot be fully British until the idea of British acknowledges redefinition from other cultures. Only then will it be fit for ours and other Black use." - Gurinder Chadha
