STORIES OF CROSS-CULTURAL RELATIONSHIPS AROUND THE WORLD

 

To celebrate the centenary of SOAS University of London, we are delighted to bring you a programme of films that tell fascinating stories about people’s experiences of intimate, cross-cultural relationships in Africa and Asia.

At a time of closing borders, xenophobia, and the essentialising of identities, these films – set in South Africa, the UK, Japan, Vietnam and Benin – challenge notions of cultural authenticity and celebrate openness to others, while also looking at the painful emotions that arise through war, migration, and racism.
