Event Details

Pressure: Film Screening and Discussion

A pioneering first feature length film by a Black British director, Pressure (1975) tells the story of the coming of age of Tony, a bright young teenager caught between the aspirations of his parents and the realities of growing up in Notting Hill. In this ground breaking film, directed by Horace Ové from a collaborative script with Trinidadian author Sam Selvon, Pressure uses a mixture of professionals and amateur actors to explores the dilemmas of being young, Black and British in mid 70s London. 

With Birkbeck lecturer Mike Berlin, a specialist in the social history of early modern London.

This free event is part of Birkbeck's Black History Month celebrations. All are welcome.
