Passion of Remembrance (15) (AD) [Preview] + Q&A with Martina Attille & Antonia Thomas
Chronic Youth Film Festival
The Sankofa collective’s first feature takes a deep dive into 1980s Black Britain, eloquently distilling tensions of race, gender, and sexuality.
“We haven’t got the space to get it wrong… that’s the problem”. Working through multiple distinct narratives, and combining archival footage, fictional drama, and monologues set within the subconscious, The Passion of Remembrance presents a richly experimental visual mosaic exploring the layers of Black experience. As you watch, consider: what are the differences between then and now?
Following the screening, there will be a live Q&A with producer Martina Attille and actress Antonia Thomas.
UK, 1986, Isaac Julien, Maureen Blackwood, 96 mins, Cert. 15
