Yesterday marked the first night of the Culture in Conflict film season. This season is designed to exhibit films that would provoke a discussion on cultural conflict. The first film shown was The Reluctant Fundamentalist, a story telling the tale of a Pakistani man, Changez, going through the cultural change that took place in America after the events of 9/11.
After the screening, the audience engaged in discussion with one of the film’s distributor Sanam Hasan, from Mara Pictures, about the events of the film and how it depicts the cultural change we face today.
It was a very successful evening put together by Jim Hornsby from Runaway Media with the discussion being recorded by Luton Sixth Form College and myself.
It was a very thought provoking evening and am looking forward to next week’s screening of Hunger.
