JubileeLarge Print - 2013
It is 1977, the Queen's Silver Jubilee, and a photographer captures the moment: a street party with bunting fluttering in the breeze. In the centre of the frame, an Asian boy stares intently into the camera. The photograph becomes a symbol of everything that is great about Britain. But the harmonious image conceals a different reality. Amid the party food and the platform shoes, there is tension. Fast forward to the present and the boy, Satish, has become a successful cardiologist. When Satish is asked to take part in a reunion of those involved in the Jubilee photograph, he must confront the truth about that day.
