A View From Here (2014)
Director: Basharat Khan
Commissioned by: Scottish Refugee Council
Glasgow’s skyline is changing. As the high rise flats are demolished, what happens to the memories of the people who lived there?
‘A View from Here’ tells the stories of refugees and local Scots living in two areas of Glasgow.
‘A View from Here‘ is a multi-disciplinary arts and heritage project supported by Heritage Lottery Fund Scotland, Glasgow Housing Association, New Gorbals Housing Association, Urban Union and WaveParticle.
It documents the heritage of the high flats in two iconic districts of Glasgow and the shared and disparate experiences of asylum seekers, refugees and local Scots who live there. This is a heritage soon to be lost as many of the high rise flats in these areas are to be demolished.
Director Basharat Khan will be joining us for a QnA discussion after the film.
