Imran Perretta reconsiders the figure of alienated male youth in a new film installation.

Diving into the complexities of the ‘coming of age’ narrative for young Muslim men in the UK, Imran Perretta uses inspiration from his own Bangladeshi heritage and the experiences of marginalised groups today to explore the collective experience of oppression.

Known for his work across moving image, poetry, performance and sound, this multimedia film project demonstrates Perretta’s reputation for using art to deconstruct cultural histories.
