On Xenophobia #3: Black Panthers + One British Family
Dear friends! Join tomorrow for the third session in the series about xenophobia.
We will watch two short films:
– One British Family (1974) documentary by journalist John Pilger
– Black Panthers (1968) documentary by Agnes Varda
The film One British Family shot few years later in Britain is a journalistic documentary that shows the lives of bright black British families and individuals, as their experiences exposes the xenophobia deeply intertwined in the society at the time.
While the film Black Panthers is shot during protests in Oakland for the arrest of Huey Newton (co-founder of Black Panther Party). It shows interviews and debates that discuss the party's ideals, natural hair movement, discussions about women, etc; and shows that they do indeed succeed to attract public attention to these discussions.
The two films shot around the same time, but in completely different ways and in two different places, is telling of two sides of the same coin when it comes to xenophobia and similar issues. Experiences still present in our lives today, and movements and debates necessary to learn from – still today.
FREE as always!
Join us to enjoy a cosy Monday evening!!
