Feminist Fightback Film Club Presents: Burning an Illusion (1981)

May 31, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join Feminist Fightback for our monthly film screening. Exhibiting anger/ joy during the film at oppressive behaviour/ high points of struggle very much encouraged. We always have a discussion after the film, and drinks and snacks are available.

We will be showing the pioneering first feature from Menelik Shabazz, one of the most significant artists and activists in contemporary British film. Burning an Illusion, a film about transformation and identity, marked a coming of age for black British cinema. It was the first British film to give a central voice to a black woman, charting her journey to emotional maturity, emancipation and political awakening.

Doors open at 7pm. Suggested donation £2 unwaged/ £3 low waged/ £5 higher waged.
