THE STORY OF LOVERS ROCK (U) plus Q&A, 96 mins, U.K, 2011. Dir Menelik Shabazz
Lovers Rock, often dubbed 'romantic reggae' is a uniquely black British sound that developed in the late 70s and 80’s. This amazing film sheds light on a forgotten period of British music, social and political history. Using wonderful archive and interviews Shabazz draws much need light to this much loved genre and the generation that embraced it. Q&A with director Menelik Shabazz follows the film.

PRIVATE ROAD (12) plus Q&A, 89 mins 1971 Dir Barney Platts Mills, starring Bruce Robinson & Susan Penhaligon.
Private Road is undoubtedly one of the great lost British masterpieces. On this film’s initial release, Platts-Mills was forced to hire a cinema to show his film only to then witness its effective disappearance for almost 40 years. This wistful and wilful film now looks like a template for the new British realist cinema. Pop-Up Finale. A special Q&A with director Barney Platts Mills follows the screening.
