Teranga – the migrant-run Afrobeat nightclub uniting Naples – video 7 Feb 7:00am Teranga – the migrant-run Afrobeat nightclub uniting Naples – video
Fata and Yankuba are two young Gambians with ambitious dreams, who fled dictatorship and poverty and landed in Naples, only to discover a new kind of violence: a pernicious climate of racism and an unhelpful immigration system. Their only escape from the psychological torture of years spent waiting for documents in squalid camps is a small underground club in the heart of the city. The Teranga nightclub provides a rare safe space for migrants to meet young Italians while dancing and singing away the collective trauma of their journeys to Europe and the discrimination they face in Italy

A 50p cuppa and a £2m flat: how one London street captures the divisions of Brexit 21 Nov 2019, 10:22am A 50p cuppa and a £2m flat: how one London street captures the divisions of Brexit
Filmed over four years, The Street documents the ‘hyper-gentrification’ of Hoxton Street in east London, where locals depend on soup kitchens, £2m penthouses are for sale and you can wash down pie-and-mash with a craft beer The pie-and-mash shop proprietor gazes out of his window at the craft beer store across the road. Outside the art gallery opening, a soup kitchen serves meals to locals in need. Billboards advertise new luxury apartments with concierge and gym while an old man beds down for the night under the footbridge. The baker closes after 150 years, while a media startup suggests sitting in a bathtub full of coloured balls to improve creativity. The Street is a new documentary that captures the textbook contrasts of the shabby old East End and the new influx of hipsters, property speculators and entrepreneurs in the area. Filmed over four years in a single location – Hoxton Street in Hackney, a stone’s throw from Shoreditch – the film reflects a much wider picture. It is not just about gentrification, but all that feeds into it: history, economics, politics, urbanisation, immigration – how changes in national policy register on the human scale, decades later. It is Brexit Britain in microcosm.

Living Undocumented review – the families ripped apart by zero-tolerance Trump 2 Oct 2019, 10:19am Living Undocumented review – the families ripped apart by zero-tolerance Trump
The tears, the separation, the kid clutching a toy dinosaur as a puffed-up official decides his fate … this heartbreaking six-parter captures the agony caused by US immigration policy Kansas City, Missouri, 2018. It is night-time and Luis, his three-year-old son, Noah, and the attorney Megan Galicia are waiting in an isolated car park for a white van. Inside is the boy’s mother, Luis’s partner, Kenia. She is six months pregnant and has been detained by Ice (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) for more than six weeks for the crime of living undocumented in the US under the Trump administration. The removal order was presented to her while she was asleep in a car on the way to a family wedding. Her son and partner watched as she was woken up, handcuffed and taken away. Now she and Noah are going to be deported back to Honduras, the country she fled because of an abusive husband. Luis, who is also undocumented, has made the extraordinary decision to deliver his son to the facility, at great risk to his own so-called freedom. Why? He wants to say goodbye to his partner, son and unborn child.

The Edinburgh fringe is obsessed with food – so I went and gorged on the best shows 12 Aug 2019, 8:26am The Edinburgh fringe is obsessed with food – so I went and gorged on the best shows
From comedy about carveries to clean-eating rants, food is a huge theme at this year’s festival fringe. The Guardian’s restaurant critic gets stuck in At Valvona & Crolla, a venerable Edinburgh deli dating from 1934, I am eating arancini for breakfast and trying to make sense of the abundance of food-related shows at this year’s fringe. For three days, I’ve plodded rain-drenched backstreets, consuming hours of drama, comedy and performance art about eating. I’ve watched comfort food cabarets and comedy about the Toby Carvery, listened to rants about clean eating and calorific excess and met (albeit figuratively) the young women who tested Hitler’s dinner each evening for poison. There has been immigration-based drama Citizens of Nowhere?, staged in the kitchen of a Novotel hotel, and a Fawlty Towers dining experience where a man with a stick-on moustache and a faux-Spanish accent proffers waldorf salad to fans of the 70s sitcom. In Hold On Let Go, a drama with music by Paul Smith from Maximo Park, bread is baked live on stage. Despite all the walking, I’ve gained extra pounds, having eaten chocolate mousse made by an Australian woman singing Teenage Dream by Katy Perry as she whisked, plus a weirdly delicious chicken caesar salad made in a cement mixer by the anarchist cook George Egg.

Windrush by Paul Arnott review – the story of the ship behind the scandal 28 Jun 2019, 4:00am Windrush by Paul Arnott review – the story of the ship behind the scandal
The ship that gave its name to a generation of immigrants, and a scandal, had a fascinating Nazi past A decade before the Empire Windrush brought around 490 West Indians to Tilbury docks in 1948, marking the symbolic beginning of a multicultural Britain, the vessel was in use as a Nazi cruise ship, taking passengers on package holidays organised by Joseph Goebbels as part of his “Strength Through Joy” public enlightenment and propaganda programme. Most people will recognise the ship from the famous Pathé news footage that showed Jamaican ex-servicemen disembarking in England, pronouncing that these people were “citizens of the Empire coming to the mother country with good intent”. Over the last year, images of it have illustrated articles about the immigration scandal that took the ship’s name, and in which thousands of legal British residents were wrongly classified as illegal immigrants by the government, some detained and deported, others sacked or made homeless.

The Alt-Right by George Hawley review – a hateful fixation on race 22 Mar 2019, 3:30am The Alt-Right by George Hawley review – a hateful fixation on race
A white supremacist movement has built up a transnational network of hatemongers. How best to respond? “The great replacement” is a term popularised by the French author Renaud Camus to denote the gradual destruction of western civilisation by mass immigration. Given the differences in birth rates between white people and the non-white population, so the argument goes, it is only a matter of time before the latter outnumber and crush the former. The concept has been a touchstone for European far-right groups such as

21 Savage is being detained, but he’s not a threat – except to white supremacy | Rashad Robinson and Jose 12 Feb 2019, 6:00am 21 Savage is being detained, but he’s not a threat – except to white supremacy | Rashad Robinson and Jose
By targeting the rapper who dared to criticise the US immigration policies, officials have proven their tactics are unrelated to border security Rapper 21 Savage was scheduled to perform at the Grammys on Sunday night, where he was also nominated in several categories. The Atlanta-based performer, who is known offstage as Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, wasn’t there because he’s being held without bail by US immigration officials for overstaying a visa over a decade ago. Holding Bin Abraham-Joseph prisoner indefinitely for a visa violation doesn’t make sense – he does not pose a flight risk, or a threat to the community – unless you confront the painful reality that many of us who work as advocates for justice have been saying now for some time. It doesn’t matter if you are black, Asian or Latinx, or if a government official is an unjust district attorney or an out-of-control Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) agent – if you are a person of color, they will find a way to lock you up.

The Secret Scripture review – Vanessa Redgrave remembers when she was Rooney Mara in forgettable soap 10 Sep 2016, 12:37pm The Secret Scripture review – Vanessa Redgrave remembers when she was Rooney Mara in forgettable soap
Mara doesn’t quite convince as a woman trapped by her sexuality while Redgrave struggles in a long-term psychiatric unit in Jim Sheridan’s disappointing adaptation of the Sebastian Barry book The career of Jim Sheridan is something of an oddity. In Ireland, his work has been universally lauded, from Oscar-winning debut My Left Foot to powerful IRA drama In the Name of the Father. He then dipped his toe into the US with immigration tale In America, a film that still retained a strong Irish narrative, and also led to more awards glory. But since then, he’s shaken off his homeland and the results have gone from underwhelming to disastrous. There was the vapid 50 Cent vehicle Get Rich or Die Tryin’, the entirely unnecessary remake of Susanne Bier’s Brothers and the staggeringly bad Daniel Craig thriller Dream House. It’s perhaps understandable that he’s eager to return to the country where he’s most loved, but regrettably, his latest film isn’t quite the comeback many might have hoped for.
