We are excited to present REVOLUTIONS, a programme of pop-up screenings of films that shine a light on some of the diverse creative and political voices that have challenged and transformed both music and society.
Join us for screenings of SUMMER OF SOUL (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) (12A) plus introductions and DJs!
In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson presents a powerful and transporting documentary – part music film, part historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The footage was largely forgotten–until now.
Thursday 17 November at Cinema City, 8.15pm
With DJs playing soul classics in the bar from 6.30pm
Tickets £8 (Under 18’s £5)
REVOLUTIONS is a partnership project with Creative Arts East, and is supported by Film Hub South East and the BFI’s Film Audience Network.
