FRONTLINE #9: Divided Britain - Society, Politics & Prejudice in the UK

It Is Not One Way screening + Panel Discussion


The World’s cultural landscape is changing and divisions between communities seem wider than ever before. Political and social viewpoints in the UK are now so distant from one another that for many, taking to the streets seems the only way to express their feelings.  

IT IS NOT ONE WAY offers another route. 

Three people with hugely contradictory political and social beliefs have dinner and discuss their differences: Dipu is a Labour Councillor and devout Muslim, John is a prominent member of the English Defence League, and Rob is a member of ANTIFA. Each have their own belief system, fears and prejudices, and together they air their views, confront their prejudices and break bread with one another. My Dinner With Andre for a fractured Britain, IT IS NOT ONE WAY suggests that discussion is always an alternative, even if we aren’t all in agreement.  


This screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Peter Hopkins (Professor for Social Geography from Newcastle University), Tony Dowling (Chair, People's Assembly North East & local anti-fascist) and filmmaker David Kenny, chaired by Richard Moss from the BBC.
