Wave after wave of immigrants have come to Britain, from the invasions by the Romans, Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Normans, to later influxes of refugees seeking freedom of religion and politics, or merely a better life. There has been a Chinese community in this country since the nineteenth century. What better time to explore the Chinese-British experience than over the Chinese New Year?

The Year of the Snake will be ushered in on 10 February and the BFI Southbank will be stretching this to three days of films. She, A Chinese, The Opium War and Ping Pong will be screened on consecutive afternoons. The final film in the trilogy will also be free to over-60s.



The three films attempt to portray the lives of Chinese in the UK. A visit to the BFI will broaden your understanding of the British-Chinese and their experiences of life in twenty-first century Britain.
