Rwandan director Kivu Ruhorahoza decides to make a new film in London, a drama about Simon, a mysterious Nigerian man, who returns to London to make amends with Anna, his mixed-race lover and Bruce, Anna’s white ex-husband. Progressively, this love triangle mirrors the increasing social and racial tensions in Great Britain and Europe. In parallel to his narrative feature, Kivu documents these tensions by filming a series of rallies in the streets of London. But inevitably, the Hostile Environment Immigration Policy of the ruling Conservative Party comes back to haunt the lovers and to disrupt Kivu’s filmmaking efforts.
This film will only be available in Docs for Sale on November 23, after its World Premiere.
