Bhaji on the Beach

Almost a decade before her success with BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, Gurinder Chadha’s début feature earned her great acclaim and a smaller but sizeable audience. It’s the charming and irreverent tale of an Asian women-only trip to Blackpool where the ages range from teens to grannies, with attitudes to match (and mix). Chadha explores the similarities and differences between the working-class English seaside culture and that of the Asian women with wit and insight. This screening will be introduced by Dr Anna Claydon, Lecturer in Film Studies at Edge Hill College.
