Rewind Fast Forward: Film Screening & Filmmaker Q&A at Manchester Art Gallery

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Rewind Fast Forward: Film Screening plus Q&A with film makers at Manchester Art Gallery, City Centre 26 March 2017 Entrance is free

Created by Sandi Hughes, a feminist filmmaker, DJ and poet, ‘Rewind Fast Forward’ is a cultural photographic and video archive with material spanning from 1975-2005, which looks at music, club and fashion sub-cultures in Liverpool, and their intersections with local LGBT and BAME history.

Sandi’s extraordinary life – as a child raised in foster care, as a mother who fought a homophobic custody battle, and as an artist, feminist and DJ – is explored in three short films created from her archive – one by Hughes herself, and two more by artists Evan Ifekoya and Hayley Reid.

Reel Good Film Club host an exclusive screening of the films at Manchester Art Gallery, where all three artists will be on hand to answer your questions. After the screening and discussion there will be a potluck lunch followed by a zine-making workshop, which will make full use of the materials in Hughes’ archive.
