Babylon follows a young reggae DJ (Brinsley Forde, M.B.E., frontman of the British group Aswad) of the Ital 1 Lion sound system in Thatcher-era South London as he pursues his musical ambitions while also battling fiercely against the racism and xenophobia of employers, neighbours, police, and the National Front.

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.”
