I Am Not Your Negro

  negro-web

  Wednesday 20 September 7.45pm
    Director: Raoul Peck
    Certificate: 12A
    Runtime: 1h 33m
    Release: 2016

“The story of the negro in America is the story of America - it is not a pretty story.” In the wake of Black Lives Matter and Obama’s presidency, this powerful film uses the words and ideas of American writer James Baldwin to produce a cinematic version of the book he never completed. It is a visceral narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assassinations of Baldwin’s friends: Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. Though partly rooted in the struggle for equality in the 50s and 60s, this film is about what it means to be black in America today.



'...you will be astounded by the sheer brilliance of his polemic.' The Independent

Estate, A Reverie

  estate-web

  Wednesday 18 October 7.45pm
    Director: Andrea Luka Zimmerman
    Certificate: U
    Runtime: 1h 23m
    Release: 2015

A deeply moving portrait of a community in East London living on the Haggerston Estate - built on land that was originally part of the estate of the astronomer Edmond Halley, later demolished and recreated in the 1930s as a model housing estate for London’s working class. The estate’s constituent blocks are named after characters from Samuel Richardson’s Clarissa. The film mixes lyricism, literary recreation, gritty realism and music. It is poignant and real, deeply felt and important… a paean to survival, dignity, solidarity, a paean to a community in the face of erosion.

'An enthralling and uplifting celebration of the resilience of humanity in flux.' Andrew Kottin
