To what extent can the work of Black filmmakers contribute to the wider movement for freedom? Is representation enough? How can visual media contribute to contemporary narratives of emancipation?
Sorryyoufeeluncomfortable (SYFU) present a screening of Black British shorts by emerging artists, followed by a discussion and Q&A. Join filmmakers, DJs and SYFU member's Rabz Lansiquot and Deborah Findlater after the screenings to discuss moving beyond representation in Black film towards liberation. The conversation will be recorded for inclusion in an upcoming SYFU x ICA Associates publication.
If you would like to submit your short film to be screened, please send SYFU an email before Monday 1 May at [email protected]
Tickets are free but capacity is limited so booking is necessary. This event follows a panel discussion Post-Legacy: Moving Image and the Supremacy of Inclusion and is part of the conference Black Film, British Cinema, in collaboration with the University of Greenwich and Goldsmiths, University of London.
