Save Event: Corinne Silva: Wandering Abroad

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



David Oluwale came to England from Nigeria as a stowaway in 1949 with dreams of studying to become an engineer; twenty years later he was found drowned in the River Aire. Subsequently two police officers were found guilty of assault. This new film-work traces Oluwale's journey down the river, his final journey, but also narrates a journey through the city, a journey through time, resonant with the change and transition wrought by contemporary urban development and the experience of migration. Accompanied by a publication ‘Wandering Abroad': video stills by Corinne Silva, texts by Caryl Phillips and Nigel Walsh.
