Followed by a Q&A with ‘Handsworth Songs’ producer Lina Gopual.

In association with Black History Studies. This thought-provoking double-bill combines two experimental documentaries about black culture. Isaac Julien’s Territories (1984) critiques the way traditional media represents black people and portrays the Notting Hill Carnival as an event about resistance. John Akomfrah & Black Audio Film Collective’s Handsworth Songs (1986) is an essay on race and disorder in Britain, filmed in Handsworth and London during the riots of 1985 and incorporating newsreel and archival material. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Lina Gopaul, the producer of Handsworth Songs.

Booking for this free screening is essential.
