Gurinder Chadha’s (Bend it Like Beckham) triumphant 1993 debut, scripted by Meera Syal, follows a group of British Asian women on a Blackpool day trip; where they learn one another’s secrets, upset stereotypes, experience racism and sexism and befriend and bicker with each other. Hilarious and heartwarming, it’s a feminist statement, perceptive on age, identity, diaspora and the joy and energy of difference. Presented in 35mm glory via our 1950s projector, it’s not to be missed on the big screen.
