Memory Pictures

Pratibha Parmar

1989, 24:00 minutes, colour, English


This documentary explores the issues of identity and sexuality through its focus on Asian gay male photographer Sunil Gupta, now living in London, England.
Using images from Gupta's art, Memory Pictures gently explores the tensions existent in his life as he searches for an identity which reflects both his sexuality and his cultural background. This video creates a space from which different communities can begin to speak and to define themselves.
