Images of Apartheid: Filmmaking on the Fringe in the Old South Africa (Calum Waddell, 2018)
From the maker of 42nd Street Memories and American Grindhouse, Images of Apartheid uncovers the likes of Joe Bullet (1973), Fishy Stones (1979) and Umbango (1986), blaxploitation productions devised as entertainment for African natives forced into dilapidated townships.

This screening takes place in association with Kinning Park Complex‘s Waste Not Want Project which hosts a weekly Pay-What-You-Want Community Meal that intercepts surplus food from supermarkets which is destined for waste and creates nutritious meals for the community. The meal happens every Thursday from 6-8pm.
The Waste Not Want Project is funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund. Since its inception in 2016, the community kitchen at KPC has prevented 67,382kg of CO2 emissions, an amount of carbon emissions equivalent to those released to produce 5 tonnes of beef. Considering the amount of meat the average person eats, this is enough to feed 117 people for a whole year.
