Tapestry of Colours

‘Tapestry of Colours’ is an emotive 80 minute feature documentary directed by Zhenia Mahdi-Nau, which explores the fusion of cultures in Northern Ireland.

It features personal and moving interviews with individuals from the two traditional cultures in Northern Ireland and those who have arrived from various parts of the world, set against colourful and unusual festivals with a strong emphasis on music.

The film poses several questions on perceptions and attitudes about identity and culture but ultimately leaves the viewer engaged and inspired.
