Special Events

NO FACT OF BLACKNESS

This event has ended.

20:30 Fri 17 Jan 2020

Regent Street Cinema

These contemporary artists draw from black British creative, cultural and socio-political lineages and play with conventional notions of experimental filmmaking across their works.

Spanning narratives of intergenerational dialogue around family and community, what it means to exist as people of colour in rural spaces and explorations of the pressures of creating art under the white gaze come together to show that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all black British experience, or a singular way to express it.

Followed by a Q&A with some of the featured filmmakers. Guest programmed by Dan Guthrie. 57’

    Process is a film that highlights the beauty and importance of Afro hair at every step of it's wash-to-style journey. While most hair adverts depict the natural ease of the 'wash and go' of white hair, Dillon conceives of an advertising landscape where non-white hairstyles are the norm.
