Identity, notions of nationality and of borders, bring together an eclectic selection of short films by Arab-British directors, looking to explore questions of identity, faith, gender and everything in between. Key to these films, and ever-pertinent today, are reflections on how the decisions and actions of older generations have impacted on younger generations today: from questions of exile to the notion of belonging; and from acceptance to pride.
