Imran Perretta: the destructors at The Whitworth
Imran Perretta: the destructors
19th May 2021 – 19th December 2021
The Whitworth presents a new 2-screen film by London-based artist Imran Perretta. Drawing on the artist’s own experience as a young man of Bangladeshi heritage, the film explores personal and collective experiences of marginalisation and oppression. Shot on location in Tower Hamlets, East London, it reconsiders the figure of alienated male youth, exploring the complexities of ‘coming of age’ for young Muslim men living in the UK.
