Reclaim the Frame/ Preview: White Riot + Q&A, online, 19 June 2020, from £9.99 - Book now

Reclaim the Frame, the BFI-backed project that aims to grow audiences for films by women, is back this Friday with a preview event for London Film Festival Best Documentary Winner, White Riot. Scheduled in conjunction with Spiritland and Everyman Cinemas, the online event features a panel discussion with the film’s director Rubika Shah, author Daniel Rachel and Meltdown Festival lead programmer, Bengi Unsal.

White Riot uses archive footage and newly-shot interviews to chart the emergence of Rock Against Racism. Formed in 1976 in reaction to “music’s biggest colonialist” Eric Clapton and his support of racist MP Enoch Powell. As neo-Nazi’s recruited the nation’s youth, Rock Against Racism used multicultural punk and reggae gigs as rallying points for resistance. Acts such as X-Ray Spex, Steel Pulse and The Clash were amongst those who lent their voices to the cause.

Viewers are invited to stream the film before logging in at 8pm for the panel discussion. Live performances by Gary Powell (The Libertines), DJ and journalist Bill Brewster; and UK reggae artist and former member of The Slits; Hollie Cook will follow.
