‘Staying Power: Black Britain on Screen’ Film Festival Monday 8 June – Saturday 25 July 2015

Black Cultural Archives Film Festival 2015 In partnership with Ritzy Picturehouse Cinema Monday 8 June – Saturday 25 July…

This summer, Brixton’s Black Cultural Archives in partnership with Ritzy Picturehouse present Staying Power: Black Britain On Screen. Inspired by BCA’s current Staying Power: Photographs of Black British Experience, 1950s – 1990s (in partnership with the Victoria and Albert Museum), Staying Power: Black Britain On Screen Film Festival is an homage to the cinema of Black identities in the British frame.

It is a salute to the pioneering voices of Black and British cinema; those independent storytellers, community griots, radical documentarians and counter-culture moving image activists who animate the unseen and amplify the seldom explored narratives.

Staying Power: Black Britain On Screen is a capsule collection of iconic snapshots; a time-traveller’s journey from the 1950s to 2015, reflecting Black culture’s evolving space in Britain’s landscape and beyond. What is the essence of ‘Staying Power’? This season of critically acclaimed feature films, rarely seen shorts, documentaries and dynamic live BCA salon debates invite you to explore and challenge: A Question of Belonging, LOVE?, Black Genius, Revolt & Revolution, Soul Cinema: Mirroring The Black Atlantic and what it means to be Black In The Digital Age.
Tickets will be on sale via Ritzy Picturehouse soon.
