Synopsis

In 1968, Conservative MP Enoch Powell gave a shocking speech in Birmingham opposing immigration throughout the UK. The 'Rivers of Blood' speech was described as 'evil'. It resulted in Powell's dismissal from the Shadow Cabinet and made thousands of immigrants feel unsafe in the country they had adopted as their own. Powell himself became a symbol of both loathing and fervent admiration. Sarinder Joshua Duroch, a British man whose grandparents came to this country from India, provides a new perspective on this divisive figure. Despite disagreeing with Powell's methods, and despite the trouble that Powell caused for his family, Duroch finds that it's not impossible to establish some common ground.

Enoch, I Am a British Indian is a bold and unusual examination of immigration, the failure of multiculturalism and the legacy of an extraordinary and controversial MP, whose impact is perhaps felt more strongly than ever today.
