Film and TV archives only give us part of the picture. This is an opportunity to hear from two people who are adept at navigating these collections, and drawing out the untold stories which can fall through the gaps.

Nirmal Puwar is Reader in Sociology, at Goldsmiths, University of London and the author of 'Space Invaders: race, gender and bodies out of place' (2004). Puwar's formative Coventry cinema experiences formed the basis of a collaborative series of short films and exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery, and more recently she co-led 'Noise of the Past', a public intervention on remembrance and the postcolonial, innovating a call-and-response method, with Kuldip Powar, Sanjay Sharma, Francis Silkstone and Nitin Sawhney. Today she'll be discussing cine material from the private collection of the late Raj Malhotra, activist and Coventry's first non-white councillor, who travelled by bicycle to the city from the Punjab in the 1970s.

Billy Dosanjh is an artist and filmmaker with a particular interest in race, identity and the working class South Asian diasporas of the Black Country where he grew up. Screened at Flatpack 2011, his graduation short A Miracle in West Brom won the Satyajit Ray award. Dosanjh is currently producing a FLAMIN commission and developing his debut feature, and will be talking about his new initiative Reimagining Industrial Migrations.
