Death May Be Your Santa Claus
Thursday, 3 May 2012 from 18:30 to 20:00 (BST)
Frankie Dymon's Death May be Your Santa Claus (1969), arguably Britain's first and only example of a 'black power' movie, in which themes of sexual and political identity encircle one another in the context of a hip and hippy London of the late 1960s, suspended between the cinematic radicalisms of films such as Roeg's Performance, Godard's Sympathy for the Devil in which Dymon played a leading role, or Boorman's Leo the Last.
In a discussion of the film, which will be shown in full, David Dibosa will consider the possible relations between political and sexual fantasies of freedom and the resolution of discrimination through the presence or the exclusion of the queer as a critical index of political possibilities. Chaired by Adrian Rifkin.
David Dibosa is a researcher at Wimbledon college of Art. He trained to be a curator, working closely with some of the key figures in Britain's Black Arts Movement, such as Sonia Boyce, Marlene Smith and Maxine Walker.
Adrian Rifkin is professor of art writing at Goldsmiths, University of London.
