British Art Show 9: Black Atlantic

Wednesday 9th November 2022

Dir. Various, 79 mins.

In this collection of shorts, curated by Lux and BFI, filmmakers and contemporary artists explore the legacy of forced migration and the transatlantic slave trade in boldly imaginative terms. From a mythic Black aquatopia to wild, destructive weather systems battering the West Indies, these films weave past and present and fact and fantasy into a mesmerising web of ideas, images and cultural connections.

The screening will be preceded by 'Our Home Plymouth'

This 13-min film is a collection of thoughts and feelings from women who have settled in Plymouth. A film made by PDREC Women’s Collective with Compass Presents, The Box Plymouth and Plymouth Arts Cinema with support from BFI Film Hub North.

Tickets £5 full price/£4 concessions.
