Reforming The Image: Black Representation On Screen

Reforming the image: Black representation on screen will be a season looking at some of the ways in which Black representation on screen has changed and adapted to reflect a more authentic depiction of the Black experience. We are starting off with one of the first black representations on the British screen with the work of the late Earl Cameron who died earlier this year. The season will also feature some of the work of the Black Film Workshop movement with Independent Cinema Office’s Second Sight Film tour, and some emerging filmmakers that are reshaping a new image of the Black experience at this year’s Derby Film Festival.
