Brixton’s Black Cultural Archives Announces Film Season At Ritzy Picturehouse In London

The new Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, London announces a new film series in celebration of its opening.

The Stuart Hall Project

2 weeks ago many joined in celebration of the opening of the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton’s Windrush Square - the biggest Black heritage center ever established in the U.K.

And as part of the celebration - starting on Friday August 15th and continuing until Friday Sept 5th at the Ritzy Picturehouse - the Archives will launch a season of films, panels and talks that are intended to explore the depth and diversity of Black British and global African Diaspora cultures.

“Featuring rarely seen documentary films and shorts spanning five decades of cinema- the evolution of Black culture is examined through the post-war lens of Generation Windrush; through the pioneering interventions of Black intellectuals, defiant radicals and grassroots resistance movements of the 60s and 70s; through the avant-garde gaze of the 80s Black British arts renaissance; through the mediating journeys of Black womanhood and through connecting voices of the African Diaspora.”


Among the films to be screened during the series are John Akomfrah’s "The Stuart Hall Project" (2013, pictured above) and Stephen Vittoria’s "Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal."

Also in the program are a series of short films, programmed by S & A contributor Jana Sante, entitled "Race, Resistance, Renaissance," which will include Amani Naphfali’s "Le Bohemian Noir et la Renaissance Del Afrique," "Battle For Brixton: 25 Years On" and Lloyd Reckord’s rarely seen 1963 film "Ten Bob In Winter," which is a comic take on street life in West London during the early 1960’s.
