Synopsis

A documentary illustrating the black community’s understanding of, and response to, racism in Britain. It presents from a black working class perspective, an analysis of racism within the context of British history and the post-war crisis of the British economy. At the same time the film reflects the increasingly militant response within the black community to the continuing attacks upon it, both by organised fascist elements on the streets, and by the state itself.


Discussion will follow each film over zoom, a great space for discussing your ideas and engaging in productive debate. Alternatively, treat the discussion like a podcast and just sit back to listen to other students’ thoughts. These screenings will be an opportunity for UCL’s student community to engage with ideas regarding racial identity and racism over history as well as the present day.

The stream will be shared on the Film Soc streaming platform

No FilmSoc membership required and the event is free to attend.


 

Black History Month 2020 - Black Futures: The Future is Now

“This year, I chose the theme of ‘Black Futures: The Future is Now’ to consider how the past influences the future, how history and knowledge can be reclaimed, how we can make and imagine a liberated future for ourselves and how we can achieve justice.”
