Making Waves – screening and Q&A

Making Waves 800x600

Come along to a screening of Making Waves, followed by a Q&A with director Patcee Francis from Syncopate Media.

This documentary compares the lives of young black people growing up in the 1980’s with those growing up today. Nearly 40 years after the 1976 Race Relations Act, Making Waves documents the life stories of first and second-generation black, British citizens from the African-Caribbean communities.

The film explores and compares the social, cultural and political experiences of the two generations as they attempt to carve a rightful place for themselves in British society. It provides an insight into today’s black, British identity and asks whether the ‘waves’ made by one generation have had a positive impact on the lives of the next.

Director Patcee Francis has written about the film in advance of the screening – you can read this on our blog.
