Memories Through Cinema
Tongues on Fire
Get Direction

This exhibition is a sensorial journey down memory lane, framing London through a South Asian cinema lens. Mapping the vicissitudes of South Asian cinema and its monumental impact on culture, food, fashion, music and politics across the decades, this exhibition brings historical relevance to London’s unique modern identity – one that proudly celebrates multiple modes of being. This audio-visual odyssey showcases the indispensable contribution of South Asian communities and individuals in the writing of the city’s contemporary narrative. You are welcome to immerse yourself in this experience, not only as a curious onlooker but also as an enthralled participant.

The exhibition will open with an introduction from Dr Jonathan Oates, Borough Archivist, Ealing Borough Council.
