UCL Black History Month 2013: Film Screening -The Story of Lover’s Rock (E) (2011)
Bentham B11, Seminar Room 1 |
London | WC1H 0EG | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
In the 70s and 80s Britain was rife with racial tension and police harassment particularly against black British youths. These youths were the rebel generation who were also searching for an identity. They created a music - a sub genre of reggae known as Lovers Rock. This music became a global brand through artists like UB40 and Maxi Priest. The music brought a level of intimacy between young people that was unique. It was also 'girl power' music that empowered a generation of young women. Through comedy, live performance, dance, interviews and archive the film takes you back to an untold era of British cultural, music and political history.
The Black History Month 2013 film screenings aim to promote BME cinematic genres that tell stories from different perspectives. Screenings are open to all to provide engagement with a combination of documentaries, topical issues, storytelling and light entertainment. A short post-film chat will follow each film.
