‘British Born Chinese’ was launched with a premier screening in Manchester in April 2015 to enthusiastic reception from the audience captured in this audio-video collage. Since then, the film has been shown in China and Europe. In September 2015 the 9th Pan-European Conference on International Relations hosted an evening screening of the ‘BBC’. In November 2015, the film was screened at the Minzu University of China in Beijing (the main national university for ethnic minorities in China), featured in the ‘Happenings’ programme of the Bookworm Bookshop in Beijing and Suzhou, and included in the programme of the 6th Athens Ethnographic Film Festival.
Following the screenings in UK and China, the film received favourable reviews in national and international media.
