How much of our history do we carry? From the fields, across the waters and onto the streets; revolts become riots, rallies become tweets. This is the life. This is repeat. Uncovering texts from throughout history and the present day and presenting them for 2021, these films ask how much of the past remains in our present. – Films available to watch below & via Youtube & InstagramTV.

Children’s Children – a short film, curated by Amber James, exploring the interaction of past with the present, and celebrating Black history. Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu and Rikki Beadle-Blair direct five pieces performed by Gershwyn Eustache Jnr, Amber James, Kayla Meikle, Khai Shaw, and Sule Rimi.

The film rediscovers the voices of black activists, poets, artists and real working people, across a period of more than a century. We conclude in the modern day after hearing from Sojourner Truth, Una Marson, Stanley Crooke, Desmond Pierre and Still Shadey.

Shot on location at Prince of Peckham Pub

A co-production with Black Apron Entertainment
