About this event
The film is inspired by the Fifth Pan-African Congress and its legacies and is made by graduates of University of Salford MA Drama Production and Post-Production students. Focusing on the stories of Kwame Nkrumah, Len Johnson and Amy Ashwood Garvey, the film interweaves archival materials, narrative and original imagery to explore the broader global political, cultural and social impacts of Pan-Africanism, Black Liberation and Equal Rights movements, then and now. Incorporating the film’s premiere and a Q&A, the event will be a wonderful celebration of anti-racism and cross-institutional collaboration.
