“Our documentaries deal with some of the big social issues of the day, and we’re excited to show them to an audience interested in how documentary can contribute to major social change” – Charlie Phillips, Head of Video at The Guardian.
Pan Talks: Film Night will support Pan Intercultural Arts, an organisation dedicated to exploring cultural diversity through the arts and how much work can inspire and implement social change. Pan provides creative projects, including drama, music, and filmmaking workshops, to asylum-seekers, young refugees, female survivors of trafficking and young people excluded from mainstream education.
The short films will throw light onto issues similar to those faced by Pan’s participants. The following conversation will be an exciting opportunity for the audience to connect with their inspirational stories and creative work and hear from the people who originated Pan’s projects.
‘Bringing together Pan’s work with individuals who have experienced some of the most harmful inequalities of contemporary life, with the Guardian’s films which brilliantly show the realities of very similar individuals, is a chance for all of us to be thankful that the arts are alive and functioning in this difficult world’ John Martin – Artistic Director at Pan Intercultural Arts
