This film was last shown on 14 February 2024
A young teenage girl struggles to take care of herself and her younger brother after being abandoned by their single mother with no choice but to live out on the streets.
This is connected to La Haine through the theme of youth. They present issues that stem from the same problem whilst also having similar yet different ways of communicating it.
Part of our Young Programmer film season - Look How Far We’ve Come
The paramount motivation of this programme is to use film as a form of activism, designed to educate its audience about the perpetual burden carried by so many immigrant and working-class communities residing in the UK.
The title “Look How Far We’ve Come” achieves duality by way of representing the literal geographical distance that immigrants have travelled, whilst also posing the question of how far has society really come in its acceptance and tolerance for newcomers?
Please note - there will be no trailers before this film! Instead there will be an introduction by our Young Programmers, so do please arrive on time.
