Tea Leaf

'This film relates to what I'd call the typical Jewish London woman of my generation: growing up in the 60s, at a comprehensive school ... the confusion of denying your culture and your sexuality for years through having it beaten out of you - and then waking up in the Thatcherite 80s. Fighting the system and poverty by stealing food from supermarkets and learning to love women ... finding the importance of roots and culture and the dangers of living in the East End and being different; being a woman without a man.'
