Since leaving home in Birmingham, Rinkoo Barpaga has been determined to find somewhere to settle. 

Along the way, he’s encountered racism, discrimination, and has begun asking himself, “Where do I belong?”

“Made In India Britain” is an insight into one man’s life, as he tries to work out exactly who he is. 

Join him as he delves deep into past experiences in order to discover his true self and a place he can finally call home. 

Rinkoo Barpaga delivers his award winning performance in BSL with spoken word translation in English, and captions via Difference Engine for mobile phones.

Previously supported by the Pleasance Generate Fund.
