PCI Film Series presents 'Everyday Borders'

Introduction by and Q&A session with Leila Whitley (Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow, Zukunftskolleg, University of Konstanz, Germany).



The Postcolonial Studies Initiative continues its 7th film series in 2017 with a selection of films, shown monthly, that draw on a variety of different contexts in our postcolonial world. The series is organized annually and invites all interested in our European postcolonial present and the representation of its political, cultural and aesthetic realities and challenges. 

Everyday Borders film will be introduced briefly by Leila Whitley (Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow, Zukunftskolleg, University of Konstanz, Germany). Everyday Borders is joint project of The University of East London’s Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging and activist organisations based in London (Southall Black Sisters, Migrant Rights Network, and the Refugee and Migrant Forum of Essex and London), this documentary examines the UK’s Immigration Act of 2014 and the experience of everyday bordering. 

Everyday Borders traces the effects of legislation shifts which increasingly institute immigration checks and controls throughout the space of everyday life. As Nira Yuval-Davis explains in the film, these shifts are “threatening to destroy the conviviality of pluralist metropolitan London, and multi-cultural Britain in general.” The documentary is a piece of public scholarship, which combines an activist orientation with analysis of shifts in UK immigration policy from academics working in the UK.
