Screening of Blacks Brittanica (1978), followed by Q+A with the film’s producer, Margaret Henry. Part of BRFF 2015 – celebrating 40 years of radical British cinema.
Originally rejected for being too radical by its commissioning TV channel, Boston’s WGBH, Blacks Britannica documents the experience of Britain’s black community in the 1970s. The film offers a sharp analysis of both state and street racism, as well as recording the grass-roots reaction which emerged to confront it.
This screening is an opportunity to experience this landmark piece of political filmmaking that has recently been re-released on DVD.
All BRFF 2015 screenings are included in the Festival Pass.
