Sup homeslice! ✊🏽
This episode we spend the day on set of Channel 4 comedy/drama Home Season 2 and have a chat with the wonderful Youssef Kerkour (who plays the lead, Sami) and Shibbir Ahmed (DIT on Home Season 1&2).
After spending the day behind the scenes, we have a conversation with Youssef and Shibbir in the warmth of Youssef’s trailer discussing the importance of being seen on screen, the challenges of authentically representing the refugee experience and what can be done to improve diversity on and off screen. We call each other habibi a lot.
Also No Spoiler Alert – we’re cool like that.
