East Is East (1999)
Very British - Satires and grotesques
How does an immigrant's life look to the British eye? You might think that a couple of decades ago, this was a simpler issue. This film tells the story of a Pakistani English family. A father and husband who came to England from Pakistan at a time when the latter country didn't yet officially exist - he arrived as a subject of the British Empire. He brought his belief in Islam and his traditions along with him. Except that his children were born and raised in Salford. Are the carefully preserved values and attitude to life that he pushes on his children compatible with a modern - 1971 - British identity? Damien O'Donnell's film is more relevant than ever.
In English, with Hungarian subtitles.
The discussions before and after the screenings are conducted in Hungarian.
