Other White

Participated in: MIDPOINT Series Launch 2022

Rasťo, an aspiring queer filmmaker born in Slovakia and now in his early 30s, moves to London to fulfil his artistic aspirations but faces challenges all too-well-known to many immigrants. The city is expensive and hostile, the unpaid internships feel meaningless, the welcoming queer community isn't that inclusive at all and his dream of becoming a director seems more and more unreachable. What's worse, his broken English and Eastern European mindset make him feel, on good days, like an outsider and, on bad days, like a total loser.

(The term Other White is a classification of ethnicity in the United Kingdom to describe white persons who are not of the English, Welsh, Scottish, Romani or Irish ethnic groupings.)
