Update on the programme

With the film season just over a month away, we have now firmed up all the speakers.

Regrettably Dr Laleh Khalili will no longer be joining us to discuss the Kingdom of Women, but Rita and activists connected to the Palestinian Embassy and Nakba Museum will be.

Other confirmations include Dr Carol O’Sullivan, who has done a lot of research on cultural translation. She is going to help us discuss Surname Viet Given Name Nam.

US-based activist Alexis Pauline Gumbs is making a video recording of her letter to Audre Lorde especially for the film season. We are delighted to introduce the people of Bristol to her amazing activist work which is focused, among many other things, on the ‘resurrection’ of the ancestral spirits of inspirational black feminists.

Sue Peggs, who was part of the collective that originally made In Our Own Time, will join us to tell us her memories of the film.

Documentary filmmaker Elhum Shakerifar is joining us to reflect on Facing Mirrors.

Finally, we are super excited that Nia Melody will be joining us to perform a few songs before our screening of Calypso Rose on the 9 March to kick off the season!
