Event description

Description

The smash hit success of Black Panther and Wonder Woman has proved that superhero movies need not just be for, or about, white men. Why has it taken so long to change? Is this a passing phase or the new face of film in the #MeToo era? And why does fantasy on screen now seem to say much more than ordinary drama about real life in 2018?

Join Terri White, editor of Empire magazine, filmmaker Destiny Ekaragha, writer Ekow Eshun and comic book writer and artist Woodrow Phoenix in a debate chaired by writer and journalist Stephen Armstrong.

The talk will take place in the beautiful chapel at The House of St Barnabas. Doors open at 6:30pm, the event will start at 7:30pm. Guests are invited to stay in our not-for-profit members’ club afterwards, to continue the discussion.

This will be the 20th event in the ongoing series, 37 Things You Need To Know About Modern Britain, which is a partnership between BUG and The House of St Barnabas, forged from a mutual desire to examine modern life and popular culture.

Timings – 7pm doors open / 7:30pm talk begins in The Chapel of St Barnabas / 9pm finish
