British Asian cinema has its roots in the Black politics of the 1960s and '70s when a new wave of politically active filmmakers began to use film to challenge racism and create greater awareness of issues facing their communities, such as poverty and social exclusion. British Asian films, in keeping with these roots, focus on the position of South-Asian communities in Britain, and on the complex experiences of second generation British Asians growing up with both cultures. Key issues are conforming to, or rejecting, aspects of both cultures, often centering on religion, “arranged marriage”, intergenerational conflict, gender expectations, sexuality and racism.
