LAST WHITES OF THE EAST END

Newham in East London has the lowest white British population in the UK. This film tells the stories of the last white Eastenders who have started to feel ‘like foreigners in their own land’. Through the journeys of people leaving, or staying in a place that no longer feels like home, this film follows the last whites in Newham as the world changes around them.
