As part of their Who We Are nationwide season, We Are Parable return to GFT with an anthology of films that explore alternative realities for Black and Brown people in the UK.

Devised by Bafta-winning producer Fiona Lamptey, Foresight is a response to what it means to be a person of colour living in the UK. Although these films don’t present an idyllic future, Lamptey says, ‘my hope is that by imagining the future, we can kickstart a necessary conversation and inspire change. We don’t want the futures presented in these films – so what do we do to change that?’
