SATURDAY 28 & SUNDAY 29 SEPTEMBER, 11.00-18.00, LEYTONSTONE LIBRARY
Step inside Jambo Cinema and experience Uncle & Aunty Bansal’s Indian-Kenyan 1980s living room. Guests are invited to enter (shoes off first!) and experience an authentic living room, with original Bollywood VHS films, memorabilia and photographs, reflecting British Asian lives at the time.
This project is inspired by the personal experiences of Dawinder Bansal, creator and artist of Jambo Cinema. She grew up in her parents’ corner shop which sold electrical supplies and rented VHS tapes to the newly arrived and established Indian and Pakistani migrant communities in Wolverhampton.
Do your homework! Watch a short documentary with Bansal discussing the project's formation.GO BACK
