This is a chance to view thought-provoking cinema on past and contemporary black experience, in Britain and around the world. From memories of African American communities in the segregated South (Once Upon a Time When We Were Coloured, to hard-hitting dramas on race relations and institutionalised racism in 1970s Britain (Sus, Pressure) to contemporary black British culture and enterprise (Fade – It is more than just a haircut). Guerilla Grannies celebrates the revolutionary spirit of woman freedom fighters of Mozambique and their campaign against Portuguese colonialism with a film screening accompanied by an extravaganza of African food and musical performances.
Finally, we take a look at the life and struggles of inspirational black figures like Audre Lourde and, of course, Nelson Mandela (Audre Lourde: The Berlin Years 1984-1992, The Long Walk of Nelson Mandela.)
