DisOrient 2012 Closing Night West is West and Awards
WEST IS WEST | Feature Narrative | Andy De Emmony | 103 MIN. | United Kingdom |

A sequel to the internationally acclaimed film East is Eastthis is a universal story of diaspora, identity formation and negotiating the past and the present, West is West captures the trials and tribulations of Sajid, a 15 year-old British Pakistani as he resists the weight of his father's tradition.  In a clash of sensibilities and cultures, the father and son challenge one another to experience the world in new ways.  Along this journey, the two embark on a trip to Pakistan's Punjab that is heartfelt and hilarious.

Through the eyes of Mr. Khan and Sajid we are offered two interpretations of Punjab: the romantic and repulsive. Their alternate perceptions chart each on a different path as they uncover what lies beneath of surface.  Visually stunning and masterfully directed, West is West captures the complexity of colonialism, immigration, and identity from one generation to the next through, irony, tension, and humor.
