T A P E Presents: Lingua Franca + Spoken Word with Jasmine Gardosi

124 mins | rated 15

Introducing Found in Translation, a season of special screenings and events celebrating the incredible work of Isabel Sandoval’s Lingua Franca as part of a UK tour of special events presented in partnership with writers and poetry collectives.

Lingua Franca written, directed by and starring Isabel Sandoval follows Olivia, a Filipina trans woman working as a caregiver for Olga in New York. In the Trump era of heightened hostility, fear and uncertainty Olivia’s options for securing legal status in the US are diminished and her life and pursuit of a marriage of convenience are disrupted as Olga’s grandson moves in; leading to Olivia’s personal life and identity caving in on itself.

The films, in line with T A P E’s previous work, explore culture clashes, language barriers and attitudes towards immigrants and bring films from the festival circuit, without UK distribution, back to the big screen.

Jasmine Gardosi is the current Birmingham Poet Laureate. She is a multiple slam champion, beatboxer and winner of the Out-Spoken Prize for Poetry. Her work explores identity, LGBTQ+ issues and mental health. Jasmine will introduce the screening with a performance of her work. 

Found in Translation is made possible with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery in order to bring this project to more audiences across the UK.
