Part of BRFF 2015 – celebrating 40 years of radical British cinema.
Starting to Happen was made by community film group, Liberation Films, in 1974, and shows what happened when they worked with a group of residents in Balham, South London, using video equipment to record local protests for social change. It was subsequently shown on BBC2 with a critical discussion with participants, which will also be screened in this session. The screenings will be followed by a discussion asking what it means to screen political films now, and to seek to locate the latent political potential in historical practices and archival material.
A limited number of free places are available for those interested in attending this screening who are involved in community action or activism – please email firstname.lastname@example.org apply.
All BRFF 2015 screenings are included in the Festival Pass.
