Panel Discussion: Exploring the Legacy of the UK Black Film Workshop Movement at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 5 December 2020 - Book now

The Second Sight New Commissions screening at HOME will be followed by a panel discussion. The event will explore the legacy of the UK Black Film Workshop and the influence they have had today on current filmmakers and collectives. The conversations will focus on collective and collaborative practice and a deeper dive into the inspirations behind the Second Sight New Commissions Programme.

The discussion will be hosted by artist and filmmaker Rhea Storr. Rhea’s work explores the representation of Black and mixed-race cultures. Her work explores the ongoing theme of Masquerade as a site of protest or subversion as well as the effect of place or space on cultural representation. Joining her will be Rehana Zaman, an artist based in London. She works predominantly with moving image to examine how social dynamics are produced and performed. Her work speaks to the entanglement of personal experience and social life, where intimacy is framed against the hostility of state legislation, surveillance and control. Completing the panel is B.O.S.S (Black Obsidian Sound System), a collective formed in summer 2018, with the intention of building a community of queer, trans, and non binary people of colour involved in art, sound and radical activism.

Hear their thoughts on how the UK Black Film Workshop movement has benefitted black creatives on the, now very familiar platform, Zoom. The Second Sight New Commissions films are available to watch online, as part of the HOME Artist Film Weekender from Thu 3 Dec – Sun 6 Dec.
