Film challenging the UK's obsession with period dramas and their failure to reflect modern diversity, asking what it means for those excluded from this vision of Britain.
CLASH challenges the national obsession with period dramas and calls out their failure to reflect modern diversity, asking what it means for those excluded from this vision of the UK. Humphrey Jennings' Listen to Britain propagated a myth of national unity. CLASH, through the perspectives of underrepresented queer people of colour, critiques the myths we still tell ourselves on screen. Through candid interviews and staged period drama sequences, the film explores the issues surrounding nostalgic, 'heritage' film and television, and how they erase the diverse history of Britain, particularly its colonial past.
