Duke of York’s to screen classic LGBT film

October 22, 2016

web-600Black British LGBT classic film to be screened at Brighton’s Duke of Yorks Picture House in November.

On November 6 2016, Legacy Film will screen The Passion of Remembrance, the 1986 groundbreaking feature film by Isaac Julien and Maureen Blackwood that defined the Black experience in the UK.

Produced by Sankofa, a film cooperative formed in 1983 by black feminist and gay filmmakers, The Passion of Remembrance is a work about racism, sexism, homosexuality, and the generation gap, and their effects on a black British family.

Writer/directors Maureen Blackwood and Isaac Julien also use footage from the inner-city riots that swept Britain in 1981 and shots of gay demonstrations to portray the government’s harsh attitude toward its minorities.

Legacy Film’s programme for November and December also includes further film screenings and art exhibitions in Brighton and Hastings:
