A Radical Duet (15*)

Experiments in Film

 A woman stands at a podium addressing a crowd in a court.

In response to the latest film by Onyeka Igwe, a selection of films that challenge colonialism and present modes of revolution, organised in collaboration with Film London and FLAMIN.

In this special event, we present the newest film by award winning artist filmmaker Onyeka Igwe. The short film recounts a coming together of two women from different generations  fighting against colonialism in the 1940s to put their fervour and imagination into writing a revolutionary play.

Alongside the screening, we screen C L R James: Lecture on Africa, recorded for Channel 4, and Sometimes it was Beautiful by Christian Nyampeta (2018), which expand upon the themes of revolutionary and anti-colonial acts.

Organised in collaboration with Film London and FLAMIN.

A Radical Duet was Commissioned by FLAMIN Productions through FILM LONDON Artists’ Moving Image Network with funding from Arts Council England.

Additional support from Bonington Gallery, June Givanni Pan African Cinema Archive, and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities Cultural Programme.

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
