Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we will be postponing this event – we will look to reschedule this for mid-late October. Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.
Scalarama Liverpool, a month-long film season across Merseyside, marks 50 years since 1968 to see what impact that revolutionary year had on the world and what can we learn from the past to deal with the current state of affairs. As part of our BLACK POWER strand of this programme, we host an event in Liverpool 8 looking at black activism past and present.
Starting with short film SIN BIN OF THE CITY made by local filmmaker James Arthur Armstrong about the 1981 Toxteth Riots/Uprisings, followed by WHOSE STREETS? (Sabaah Folayan & Damon Davis, 2017) about the uprising which followed the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
“An essential testament to the commitment of activists, told in their own fervent voices.” – Hollywood Reporter.
We are pleased to welcome filmmaker James Arthur Armstrong to the screening to discuss his film.
The screening will be followed by discussion. Join us at Kuumba Imani for some food before the screening from 6pm. Films will start at 6.30pm.
