To complement current exhibition COCO!NUTS! by Rabiya Choudhry, a free accompanying programme of films which have influenced the artist will be screened downstairs at Transmission Gallery.  

My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) written by Hanif Kureishi, follows the story of Omar, the son of a Pakistani immigrant, who embarks on a venture to renovate his uncle's laundrette with the help of his childhood friend, ex-National Front member Johnny. The film is a bold exploration of sexuality, race, class and generational difference while also being compassionate, humorous and entertaining.

COCO!NUTS! accompanying film programme supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network and funded by BFI and Creative Scotland.
