Sun 19. 4. | Divadelní sál | 10:30
Race and Representation were prominent on the cultural and political agendas of the Black experience in Britain during the 1980s and 1990s. In this period, Independent film movements, embracing notions of equality of access and diversity of representation, began to challenge the dominant conventions in film and television. This was a seminal moment for the development of black film in the UK; and ultimately the collections that constitute the June Givanni Pan African Cinema Archive. The importance of an archive is to document the past so that historic events can be recalled and provide insights for future audiences. Big City Stories, is a compilation of films from a range of archival sources complied by Imruh Bakari and June Givanni. It includes a selection of fiction and non fiction material from 1911–1990s of the Black presence in London providing a taste of that experience and the issues it raises.
