6:35 am
we've both forged new paths in the walls of cinema and music, quoting for quality, diversity and inclusion. we share so many influences and experiences really looking forward to talking to her. oh thank skin one absolute oh, nice to meet you fellow lavender like me feel the same way and cover for me part of our vaccines across a lot. oh, well, i'm thrilled that you've published you'll memoir. yeah, it takes blood and guts wine now. in the ninety's, you know, everything was so fast and there was so much going on. and if you were a kid growing up, now when you were reflecting on the ninety's,
6:36 am
you would think it was just so white mouth dominated the air full of like boy bands and boy rock bands. and there was nothing else going on. but actually my impression of the ninety's and what was happening that time was my, you know, german base was huge. yes r and b was huge years. so what have you met? oh, my yeah. i think that in some ways those things were kind of more representative . i'm more important to have be more influential, more inspiring. yeah. them great pop. in my opinion, i would say you can draw a line from goldie to storm. see. yeah, i know the way you get to dub stepan to step below these musical style. yeah. that i'm asking about found is much more insurance to what's going out now. so if you think about racism biggest weapon may have is making us invisible or making what we've done. invisible. yeah. i thought, well, if i don't write it, i don't jump on it for nobody's going to and it's like we didn't exist. absolutely
6:37 am
. i think we would, would you remember of that? but when you say britpop because everyone thinks of blur and always, and possibly spice girls here. but you're right. what was really going on as you say, we go the, the beginnings of all the car. what was the underground music scene of written tick, london? yeah, you know, it has stayed the course either and it was a dizzy who. ready represented us at the yeah picks. right. exactly. yeah. moment for all of us. yeah. yeah. so yeah, there's always, this push isn't there between what is mainstream and what is marginal. yeah, and sadly, you know, the margin stuff is often the most exciting and innovative, you know, and gets lost because it's so easy to use labels. you think it's because, you know, i was the one that we have factored b, u fighters and battle try to get in there. you know, for me, in those early days it was a real battle to do something other than what i was supposed to do. because of i
6:38 am
wouldn't feel as a face like what music should have. absolutely. yeah. well i, i made 3 films in the ninety's. yeah. my 1st foot budge on the beach. yeah. 93. and you're absolutely right. i mean, it, that's not all domain. i wasn't supposed to be a filmmaker. i had a chris teacher at school. yeah. who, when i said i want to go to university. i said it will really say you should try secretary college. what is it i, i mean i went through teacher and it was a 1st person i blurted out my wildest shoes. i want to be a photojournalist. i was being a jump to jumping up by helicopter, where the become a thing, where's the action? and i told her all these james and then she, we slowly push this form in front of you think about the 1st. i looked down and it was her an application for worse. oh no. well i'm already working. it won't work as a fatty job. yeah. that, you know, well, i think the, the, the biggest surprise,
6:39 am
even after 30 years of filmmaking is people's expectations of what you can actually do it, what they think you can do. and yes, that curious teacher was wrong because sit, but i thank her because soon as she said, you need to be a secretary that spurred me on to say, well, i'll show you. and i finally had this. i will also you who's your next step after that, i went to university before that though what it started happening with me. so late seventy's i, you know, i was around during the troubles if you like. the riots are in london and manchester burning. i mean everywhere, and i had a kind of a political whitening. basically i grew up in a shop and the threat of the national front was ever present. you never knew who is going to come through the door and sort of knife your parents or whatever. but it
6:40 am
was always their attention. yeah. they had been an nf march in lewisham and people we knew shopkeepers who'd been be to the up and all that door smashed. and so when rock against racism started for me, it was like, oh this is, this is the 1st kind of public youthful, a response to the national front, a sort of collective thing. and that was on the hunting point and that, that was, well, you know, you can enjoy it. and i remember with a new cross fire happened, which was a terrible event where he's about teenagers or having a party. and somebody fire bombed at the house and it goes, it went up in flames. and i went on the march and it was the 1st march i went and was a new crossfire march. and i remember going, you know, with all these people who angry and they were young people, british born people, uh, black, asian, wherever. and that gave me a real sense of strength at she being on that march against the raises. my felt
6:41 am
a lot more empowered. i'm from brexton foe the bricks and riots is the thing that really kind of made me political. that's what i call my 1st of identity from. if i remember being very small and not feeling english at all and is because a fighter i was living in and everything i saw in a news and whatever, you know, you know, english, you know, english show black for your not from here. you're from where your parents are from . i'm i remember feeling very you may, can, i was have a little patois. bam. you know, i mean, and yeah, yes, mom and i went to jamaica. i'm, i'm such a fish out of water. i remember going to the market in mandy for which is the middle of, of jamaica. i didn't understand anything. anybody said to me. i don't be coming back to england. i mean, i loved being there. i mean, i felt roots, i felt everything, and music was amazing. i came back to england and realize that i'm something different. i didn't feel jamaican anymore. yeah. we were 1st generation of blood pressure people. yeah. i'm, we had to really find our way. absolutely will. same thing happened where i grew up,
6:42 am
which was south all it, well, the big asian, 20, the south. all of course, had his own, you know, issues with the national from that. but the community stood up, you know, and there is what people turn the self will rise, but i call it the self up ising where people said no way fascist, i'm not going to marshall street. and in a big of sites ensued and, and the young agent bent down the nf pub, the hammer to have it. so that gave the community a big us sense of identity, i think, and confidence. but it was also the beginning of the breaking between the parents generation. you were the ones who come to england who wanted to keep quiet and just work hard, you know, and provide the kids between young people who were say, well, hold on. i mean, it went on lets hit the same sh fiesta terrorism, take it. yeah. you know, we're going to fight back. you know, i was kind of
6:43 am
a young then to be part of that. but, but i stand on their shoulders. yeah, actually, i mean, i think that when my parents came over every day was surviving and you know, they came up with qualifications, they could do all the different jobs. they came to england. oh no, you have to re qualify. yeah, and i think of just about putting food on the table and just getting through the day, absent and then we come along and where port of it with accessibility of like, well why should we be quiet? why should we just stand by? yeah, i kind of grab, grab hold of the fact that i was this new thing which was black, british. yeah. and as a whole new identity, the music of the time, lovers, ra can all that was very british to make it was our own found. yeah. you know, it was our own version of reggae music can be music. i mean, for me, the beginnings of my music history was the connection. i got because my, my grand dad had a night club. oh, i'm a lot cooler of should bean is called the f residential club. but it was and i
6:44 am
remember growing growing up with the scarf feed and then that comes along bad nerves since the specials. and that's why i got the connection because it was like my grandmother's music and my parents music. but then this british music, amazing. and that's how i kind of segue into pretty societies and music. same with me. i mean, it was my band, this is the last time i saw a band that i related to the black and white, yet he put it together. that was the thing for me in an appreciative way, not an appropriating way. colette, if there were like a community group or a culture together. and then for me, jumping forward a little bit from that was the british bunger a c. r. so really bunger scene happens. that was it for me, inflation, there was this fantastic fusion of bunger music, reggae rock, a house in jazz, everything all came over and i remember thinking, wow,
6:45 am
this is amazing because this has been created by us for us, but for everyone to enjoy. and so i made my 1st film, i'm british, but because it was the 1st consolidation for me of was a british indian identity was and that easy then went on to change the landscape of music in indian films here. you know, i have a massive impact but, but for me i'm ever grateful to it because it, it gave me a sense of what being british and indian men. yeah. because you were, you were born in i robi, of what i saw her point upside. you've also got her pretty from her african. absolutely. so my mom and dad were born in kenya as well. my a great uncle was asked by the british to leave a punjab where he was a decorative police officer and come to kenya to help quell the locals after the scramble for africa basically. yeah. and he devised
6:46 am
a way of helping locals by planting new crops. so they had the new foundries because although boundaries had been carved up, and then my grandad then went over to be with him. but my dad actually pined for kenya and he would speak in swahili to us. so i think the thing about growing up with parents were from kenya, gave me a very different experience to indians going out from. yeah. okay. i mean, you've got to kind of connect to culture, but very strong individual cultures in themselves. absolutely. and you take that you come to england. yeah, i mean the identity crisis with him. i mean, i says, but he was like, the crisis in my mind was always, they don't, they teach is it was a to us of, they don't know if they're english or indian. they don't know what to speak. they should always speaking english. i haven't even identity crisis. oh, well, actually identify. yeah. yeah. and then, well,
6:47 am
i'm obviously don't them speak in punjabi with you as school because you know, get it. i'm going to speak it at home. but also interesting. my best friends at school will like from trinidad, though, from grenada, and i learned about this whole big island, small island, because lake seen it that it was kind of a residue of colonialism. yeah. i mean when for us it was cuz my dad was very pale and my mom was a bit darker. ah. so we always had that thing of like, you know, i was, i was kind of pale than other members of my family, but i was dark than other members of my family is weird dichotomy of kind of like, well, you're better because you're lighter and your last because you're darker, right, move in jamaica and going to may pain when my dad was from and they were just so pale and they just refused to talk to me. oh, you know, and that was my 1st again, more identity issues because i was like, oh, so i'm in. this is part of jamaica that's reject to me when it's in my myself, i was, i was, i was jamaican for in through. and so we want to get back to,
6:48 am
to being jamaican again, you know, i completely identify with that because when i went to india 1st went to india. when i was by 8 years old with them. and i absolutely refused to eat the food to do anything. and my poor grandma had to many chips every day. i was ridiculous, but i it's only when we go into these countries when i go to india, i realize her english, i am. yeah, exactly, and i've made lots of movies in india, you know, and i love it from what it represents and stands for, you know, in the world into the spirituality and culture. it mean it's an amazing country, but is it my country? yeah. you recognize that your wants to move? yes, i do. yeah. but i'm, i'm like you, i love to. i remember my great grandmother lived on the top of really tall here in sugar up and down the hill like has nothing to ship like 86 or something. my granddaughter had this, oh cheap. but when you drive,
6:49 am
you had this big crack down the middle about what kind of opening close as you were driving. i love being scared and kind of like excited about the same time. yeah. well now as i get older, i don't have so much conflict about am i this am i that? oh the ever yes, i just go with the flow now. yeah. in there is a part of me. i made a film on the partition of india is my gra, is the lad of my grandparents kenya, east africa is a lot of my parents in england, the lads of my kids who are actually part japanese american indian goes there. so i think that the, the world is a much smaller place and we do better to get away with these regional boundaries here, which isn't be much more global. in fact, we've kind of taken our place. so if we didn't wait for it to be given to us, and that's what we've built and yeah, i think we're going to go somewhere because i think i'm really interested. they will, these people are from watching as because they're not clear. i'm all over the world
6:50 am
. hello, what's your name? what's your question? hi, my name is be mystery and i'm from by india. so my question is that why do you think is music or music and high but it be so important for dies or artists or people in terms of giving them. there was an identity where music for me is emotion . it effortlessly is hybrid, a confluence of so many influences. so it totally speaks our language if you're part of a desperate. so for me the idea of being able to look into different expressions of people's culture and blend, the represents who i am. for me, i find that because music has so much emotion to it, it's a great connector, is the one thing that everybody on the planet can connect to and feel from their heart. it's just is one who think it comes out of us that we can translate these feelings to everybody as
6:51 am
a film. what's great when i use music in film is it allows me to layer up. so by using a fused sound of music, then you add pictures and film sound to it and you get, you get something very exciting. hi, my name is bruce and i'm from south london in brexton. my, my mother my question is for skin being both black and a woman, which one of these identities did you find more of a hindrance, navigating a white male dominated industry such as and is it an interesting question, i mean is impossible for me to separate those things they are all together all at the same time. so especially when i'm dealing with other people who are not supportive towards me and in those days i'm, i don't know which one it was. it was kind of black or was it because i was gay or
6:52 am
was it because female, i think is just the whole thing. people had some issues with the not necessarily one thing or more than the other. hi, i'm a you see bye. you too. as to women, especially children who are white, have you ever felt that internally is with in the asian community or within the black me see the work, the expectations of how you should pay. oh some. yeah. but a lot backing was about. yeah. in a, there is this expectation for all parents that their children should be colored like them either, and it doesn't matter who you are, which background, which race, which class or whatever. all parents kind of feel safe, that their kids are kind of replicas of them. obviously with us, when our parents immigrants sort of come in from somewhere else, we carry the guilt of trying to make their life feel worthwhile and their struggles to give us a great education. you know, but my parents,
6:53 am
when they realized i wasn't going to be a doctor, you know, or lawyer. and i wasn't going to get married in a 23 or something. i think they took that in their stride, actually ally. and i was able to take them with me on my journey. so, you know, i think we're going to always keep pushing boundaries for, for what you believe in and what is all sent it to you. and then one for the question, the scale now would you go on there less black female stars who are allowed to, i guess, be a bit outlandish or be rock stars. will you ever frustrated yourself and probably need to go to america, or you can kind of in its own eccentric way. so like a safe space the times. i think that the impression of what black women are supposed to do in this country in england, a very small, it's either you're highly sexualized or you're highly aggressive. and i think it's is very small sphere that society puts on us. and i decided i am
6:54 am
very ill estate off to try to fit in and trying to be either of those things. i try to be aggressive actually i just singing rock songs a bit aggressive. i'm, i discovered though i am, no, i'm not the go next door for stop trying to be like, you know, a white boy walker. and once i kind of let go of that, but that's really when everything fell into place. either the racism of the sexes miss still so strong that it is more difficult. i think because this impression, which is wrong, that black people fronting rock fans is not going to sell or is not going to be popular. you know, i was hardly on any covers of magazines because they thought i was still going to sell mean what, what was just to try and prove them, let go into such a just do what you're doing and reprove the wrong. thank you. a quick question. really awesome discussion so far and green. i want to talk to you about your segment in the film that is your 10. 0 really? yeah. really for me not only as a muslim women,
6:55 am
both are sort of mixed heritage. and the authors such interesting insight into the issues of identity, what you've both spoken about today. unfortunately, today's prompt is somewhat different and the main character and probably just them soccer. today, she might have to remove her head job. so i wanted to ask you, how do you feel about how the country has changed since you made that age of them. and what are your thoughts on the right to be extreme, right. and the well today and as off has been created, do we have a lot of responsibility towards combating hurtful and defective narrative as so perish term is a film where about 18 different directors all get to make a short 10 minutes short. and we can make it on anything we want. and so they asked me and i immediately thought, well, is going to be something to do with the job because that was the big thing at the time being debated. and i did was a love story between a girl who's got a job on and a french boy francois. and what happens is he from suarez with another boy who cool
6:56 am
is that it gives her a sla, basically says for france, for the french. and he says, why have you got some when you're covering all your beautiful hair, you know? and she responds and saying, it's my choice. you know, i keep my have for myself when i want to use it for other people to see happy for this is me and is my identity and, and they end up having a conversation. so it's again, it comes down to fear really fear of the unknown. and i think that it's important as much as we can certainly is to always bring everything down to the common denominator as humans and in that film. and that's what i was trying to do. is just bring them back down to the fact that led by french and in terms of the rise of the right, i think, yes, there is arise of the right. but there's also rise of the left, you know, and that, that will always be the case. and we must take solace in that in a, in the fact that people will always be there to fight fascists. i mean, i,
6:57 am
i what i feel about it is the right. oh, very organized base. kind of like the shoes. big force is army putting feelers out all over the well starting little group thought over the work i'm trying to directly influence people empower well if it left when people sometimes i feel like we get cooks so co op in our cells and find ourselves where these guys hear just like marching forward really, you know, strong like there the tortoise and where the rabbit going around in circles. and so i would like to see a lot more. i'm strength in numbers because if we don't, then we'll have it be in a situation where some maybe, you know, conscious like dominoes and all have fresh you some right wing or why supremacy governments in about 5 years time, 1000 question, themes in the whole reason i came into making films was because i wanted to challenge the
6:58 am
fact that we were absent from the screen. and therefore, absent from history from me, writing about politics or writing about political things really was just writing about my past experience. we all the recorders of all voices as people that the asked for. and because that there they can't be taken away ah, from the al jazeera london broadcast and task to people in thoughtful conversation with no host and no limitation, it leads as a place of color. it was the struggle. here. it would be much easier for me might feel that white people up part to go into and sing a song right that again. so carry other people, wait a minute, you get way down. you stop what you're doing and maybe one studio b unscripted on al jazeera november marx,
6:59 am
the 5th anniversary of a peace treaty between the columbian state and fark rebels. but the security situation and conflict regents like hearing coca is far from resolved. can the government feel deliver on the promise fees, special coverage on all 0. all counseling the cost is big follow refuses to say, has private back soon. secret wells health organization hires a south african labs, crack m on a coast manufactured by the pound. i make the airline industry, what's the route to madison? counting the costs on out there. ah, meet the minimum is a tough is helpful and the daughter decided to quit the rock race hoping to live better with less. let's just throw everything away. al jazeera will expose the simple living movement aimed at reducing personal consumption,
7:00 am
credit and clutter. and i hope to be here as a result, a simple life on al jazeera. ah if his prime minister says he'll lead the military from the front lines of rebel advances, threatening his hold on the capital. ah, killing robin watching all their lives when headquarters here in doha, coming up a warning to germans on cove at 19 b health, but it's the says that leave the get vaccinated recover or die from the virus that its whale is opposite, should be the one why days in unity and calls the rebuilding.
