Diary of an Expat
Austrian Cultural Forum London 28 Rutland Gate London SW7 1PQ
Directed by Austrian Katharina Reinthaller, The Diary of an Expat tells the comic story of the encounter between Cecilia, a modern migrant, and London, a contemporary El Dorado, craved by generations of young Europeans. Arriving in the UK nine years ago, with a suitcase full of hopes and dreams (and homemade pasta), Cecilia’s mission begins: to become British whilst remaining deeply Italian. But hundreds of dubious jobs and weird encounters later, Cecilia finds herself amongst the chaos of Brexit, as the walls of multi-ethnic, glamorous London crumble around her.
