Homelands, by Jaha Browne, Tara Manandhar and Ammo Talwar MBE (72mins)
Homelands is an innovative film project which sees four UK based music artists revisiting the country of their parents birth and finding out what impact that land had on them both culturally and creatively. The artists spent time in their ‘home’ countries, discovering elements which continually added pieces to their own personal puzzle. A fascinating story of cultural genealogy studded with rocking and rousing musical interludes.

A Nigerian born oil industry executive is driving to a friend’s country house when they realize the tank is needling towards empty. They are greeted by Scott, a local who inherited his business from his grandfather. Full Service explores the effects of globalization on local economies and culture, our propensity to stereotype others, and the fact that we are all more complex than we seem.

C’est Moi (9mins)
Set in modern day Montréal C’est Moi explores the collision of the past as it meets the present in the forgotten story of Marie-Josèphe Angélique, a figure of Black Canadian History and her efforts to fight against slavery in 18th Century New France. How much of our past is erased in the restoration of history?
Six Rounds by Marcus Flemmings (60mins)
As the 2011 London riots unfurl, a former boxer has to choose between his past and his future in Six Rounds, Marcus Flemmings’ bold and stylish second feature. Stally is a former fighter who stepped out of the ring while he was still unbeaten. Having fallen in love and gotten a regular job, he feels like he’s moving towards something positive. But when an acquaintance from his past asks him for a favour, he finds himself trapped in a corner, from which he’ll need to fight his way out, in a tense and emotive tale of race, love and redemption in the midst of spiking social tension.
Voice from 10,000 Miles, by Oluwadamilola Oshodi (9mins)
