Event Details

Running parallel to the Black Lives Matter movement in the US, a surge of young black and brown activists has emerged in the UK fighting for racial, economic, and gender equality. This propulsive documentary immerses viewers in the inner-workings of some of London’s most prominent revolutionary groups—including the Black Revs and the R Movement—as they take to the streets, score successes, suffer disappointments, and transform Britain.

This screening is part of The Caribbean Film Series, which presents feature films made by Caribbean filmmakers that highlight the richness, uniqueness, and viability of Caribbean cinema to Brooklyn, home to the largest population of Caribbean nationals in the United States, and to all New York City residents and visitors. For more information visit the Caribbean Film Academy website.

The directors Cassie Quarless and Usayd Younis will be in attendance for a Q&A with local activists.
