TV Preview: Being Blacker + Q&A

Being Blacker
Monday, 22 January 2018 - 6:45pm
Princess Anne Theatre, BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London
A preview of BAFTA-winning filmmaker Molly Dineen’s new BBC film telling the story of well-known reggae record shop owner and music producer, Blacker Dread, his extended family, friends and the wider Brixton community. Followed by a Q+A with Molly Dineen and Blacker Dread.

Made with Dineen’s characteristic intimacy, the film focuses on a tumultuous time in Blacker’s life: the death of his mother and the prospect of his first prison sentence. With the unprecedented access granted by her old friend, Dineen shines a spotlight on the struggles the characters face on a daily basis and in doing so offers a particular understanding of both the challenges and triumphs of family and community togetherness in Blacker’s world.

Blacker’s story offers a unique insight into what it is to be black in Britain today.
