FILM SCREENING: 'Being Blacker' + director Q&A
March 9, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Save for Later
After a ten-year absence, acclaimed filmmaker Molly Dineen is back with an intimate portrait of Jamaican-born reggae producer, businessman, father, son, and community pillar, Blacker Dread. 40 years after featuring in Dineen’s first film, Blacker invites Dineen to film his mother’s funeral, opening the door to his life at a time of great personal crisis. As the story unfolds, he reflects on the issues that have dogged his last 40 years here in the UK; inequality, poverty, crime, and racism. Made with intimacy and warmth, Dineen’s film takes us deep into Blacker’s world and, through his eyes, offers a rarely-heard perspective on life in Britain today.
This special screening at Bertha DocHouse, London’s documentary cinema located inside Curzon Bloomsbury, will be followed by a Q&A with director Molly Dineen.
