"Britishness" discusses identity, race and belonging through interviews, discussions and spoken word performances. It was produced and directed by Eelyn Lee, supported by a team of volunteers.
A group from Hive South Yorkshire young writers' group worked on the film, which includes interviews with the former Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Magid Magid, Sheffield-born Manchester City and England footballer Kyle Walker, Sheffield's Poet Laureate Otis Mensah, and writer Desiree Reynolds along with a range of other local people and community organisations.
The film raises many issues for debate and will make a great educational tool for facilitating discussions and workshops; both in schools and more informal education settings.
