Join Michelle Williams Gamaker for a screening of her short film House Of Women (2017), followed by an in-conversation with Narration Group co-convenor Ufuoma Essi.


The film reimagines the role of Indian dancer, beggar and maid Kanchi from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s film Black Narcissus (1947) through interviews with first generation Indian ex-pats living in the UK and British Asian women and non-binary people.

Michelle describes these interviews as ‘fictional activism’, which she uses to examine the eroticising and exoticising of bodies of colour in 20th century film production.
