The unwelcoming side of Britain: Beru Tessema on Lions

Monday 20 March 2023, by Brasserie du Court team, Elise Loiseau

Rosie, a Congolese teenager, who’s recently arrived in London, discovers the unwelcoming side of life in Britain when a misunderstanding with two window cleaners escalates into conflict.

Lions is having quite the successful festival run. Well deserved, for this prescient and rousing short by London-based Beru. The short will be screened as part of a special programme of Clermont highlights in London at the Garden Cinema, in partnership with the festival team and Mydylarama!

The Brasserie team caught up with the Ethiopian-British filmmaker.

You’ll be able to catch the film at the Garden Cinema in London as part of the Clermont-Ferrand in London event on 4-5 April!
