Event description

Description

Women Of The Lens was overwhelmed with productions concerning identity – so much so, we have two separate screenings and this is Chapter One. For women and other people categorised as ‘minorities’, the concept of identity is an ever present one. If the women are black or of colour this becomes exceptionally pertinent - if only because of the historical action of the stripping away of identity from one’s families, tradition, heritage and culture. We saw entries focussing on particular aspects of hair and skin colour (i.e. colourism) and some of the films are challenging, others still are celebratory and accepting.

In this Chapter we pay Tribute To A Classic which is the film Burning An Illusion, directed by Menelik Shabazz. This screening will be preceded by an introduction.
