A rare screening of a landmark film that focuses on young Black South Londoners following a sound system. Revolutionary in the way it authentically portrayed young Black British lives, the film is infused with the spirit of resistance as the protagonists kick against police brutality, racism and lack of job opportunities. Significant in Black British history, the soundtrack features music from Denis Bovell and Aswad.
A round table with Kelly Foster, Professor Paul Goodwin (Chelsea College of Arts) and Mykaell Riley (Senior Lecturer at the University of Westminster and former lead singer with Steel Pulse) will follow the screening. Organised by Professor Martin Evans for the Centre for Photography and Visual Culture and the Resistance Studies Network, University of Sussex.
Babylon will be introduced by Kelly Foster, public historian and specialist on Black British music.
Starring: Brinsley Forde, Karl Howman, Trevor Laird
Produced in: UK 1980
