Runtime: 90 mins

Anti-cool and Waugh Office (Julia Waugh & Mark Waugh) present the premiere of Tea and Sugarcane. The film follows the lives of two male victims of human trafficking and slavery in the UK, revealing the story of how they came to find themselves in this situation. Through interviews, we explore their upbringings, families and childhood dreams and discover the triggers which made them take such a risky path to the UK.

Alongside Tea and Sugarcane, Anti-cool also presents two of their recent experimental audio-visual works: Wind, Land and Sea and Echo Tides.

This event includes a discussion with Anti-cool and Julia and Mark Waugh (Waugh Office), followed by a Q&A with the audience. The event is supported by Arts Council England.

Doors: 18:30. Screening: 19:00.
