  The New Black Film Collective 2016 [read more]
  Racial politics for all
  The New Black Film Collective today announced its 2016 Black History Month programme, which will include special screenings and events in London over the course of October.

Supported by the British Film Institute’s (BFI) Shakespeare in Film programme, The New Black Film Collective's Black History Month season will focus on the theme of Shakespeare in Black & White – delving into mixed-race relationships and the whitewashing of history through the lens of contemporary cinematic comparisons of the great bard's work; particularly Othello, Anthony and Cleopatra and Romeo & Juliet.

The titles will include special screenings of Amma Asante's true story A United Kingdom, starring David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike; Gary Ross' historical Free State of Jones, starring Matthew McConaughey and Gugu Mbatha-Raw; and the 25th anniversary of Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever starring Wesley Snipes and Annabella Sciorra.

The programme is punctuated with films of protest by seminal filmmakers, with Stanley Nelson Jr.'s critically acclaimed The Black Panthers: Vanguard of a Revolution, which kicked-off the programme on Monday and Spike Lee's topical Chi-Raq, which will mark the end of the programme on Thursday, October 27, 2016.
