‘From East to West’ explores how the Chinese culture has integrated themselves in Britain. How the Chinese people have adapted this dual identity, with the nationality being British and ethnically Chinese. I will be working alongside my fellow social anthropology colleague and trusting friend Thomas Slatter. To some degree, this is a personal journey, to see how my culture has developed and integrated itself inside Britain. Questions which we want to answer are how have the Chinese adapted? Why did they decide to move? What does home mean to them?

One might say “we are often heard but remain unseen” shows that the Chinese have undoubtedly created a home for themselves, having settled and found a place for their respective families. This short documentary aims to portray the Chinese as respective citizens within Britain, with their cultural autonomy and self dependence they have together formed a positive respectable name for themselves. The integration of the Chinese can be understood in terms of cultural evolution, as the British became to understand the Chinese as a culture and similarly, as the Chinese learnt about their respective territory, which is so very different from home.
