Roxy Rezvany, a Brent born and bred filmmaker, joins us to share a collection of her beautiful short films.
In the year of Borough of Culture we are delighted to welcome Brent born filmmaker, Roxy Rezvany, to Other Cinema's second Emerging Filmmaker showcase of the year. Roxy will be sharing two of her films with us, Little Pyongyang and Wifi Rider. The discussion with Roxy will be chaired by the producer of Little Pyongyang, Ayo Kaido.
Joong-wha Choi, a former soldier in North Korea, lives today in a sleepy London suburb, home to Europe's biggest North Korean population. Despite enjoying the new found comforts of his British life, he has a desire to return to the land that betrayed him, and feels like his true home.
