Multitudes Trailer

Multitudes by John Hollingworth Directed by Indhu Rubasingham ‘While we’re watching Saturday Kitchen Live and getting our bits from M&S and indulging down the gastropub, there’s an army of people – a growing army of people – shunning our lifestyle.’ Bradford. On the eve of a Conservative Party Conference the country is in turmoil and one of its most multicultural cities awaits a visit from the Prime Minister. Kash, a liberal British Muslim, prepares his address to politicians about the state of the nation. His girlfriend Natalie, a recent convert to Islam, cooks for anti-war protesters gathered at the Town Hall. Lyn, her mother, moans to anyone who’ll listen about the decline of her cherished England. It’s all too much for Kash’s daughter Khadira, who begins to plan a radical intervention. As the nation questions immigration policies and military support in the Middle East, one family face their own internal conflict of faith, belonging, and who gets to call themselves British. ‘This whole multicultural happy-clappy hippie-dippie love-in is a fantasy.’
