Dear Bradford: a love letter to a misunderstood city – documentary

Ravi Amaratunga Hitchcock, Vivek Vadoliya, Ekaterina Ochagavia, Charlie Phillips and Lindsay Poulton (2021).  

''When I was entering teenage-dom, home began to feel a bit claustrophobic and inward-looking.'' 

 

''... to what cousin had once told me, there will come a point where you need to stick to your own. I didn't even know who my own was.'' 

 

This documentary tells the story of Farhaan, who grew up in Bradford amidst persistent stereotypes about the city. He felt the need to hide his identity and eventually left Bradford, only returning reluctantly due to the pandemic. Through his connection with his grandmother ('Amma') and the poetry of his late grandfather, Farhaan learns to appreciate Bradford and embrace his heritage. The account highlights the intergenerational journey of one family and reflects the experiences of many diaspora families in the UK and beyond. Watching this documentary made me realise that I share similar feelings with Farhaan, having to leave a city I grew up in to find myself since I did not know who I was. CLICK HERE
