Being Ruby Rich: Strong Island (15*) + ScreenTalk with B Ruby Rich and Yance Ford

6pm / London Premiere

24 June 2017
Cinema 2
Winner of The  Tim Hetherington Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2017

Yance Ford’
s debut feature is a deeply moving, complex film about a family murder, memory, injustice and the institutional racism that continues to pervade America’s legal, social and economic systems. Reminiscent of Errol Morris, Ford unforgettably delivers an investigation into resistant black masculinities, cis and trans, and meditations on raw personal grief. 

We're thrilled to welcome Yance Ford for a ScreenTalk after the film, hosted by B Ruby Rich.
