Wed 2 Oct 2019 / 3.30pm
Part of the Scottish Queer International Film Festival, London-based curator and artist Rabz Lansiquot screens their new moving image essay where did we land, an ongoing experiment interrogating the effect of images of anti-black violence produced and reproduced in film and media, and parts 1 and 2 of artist Zinzi Minott’s Fi Dem Series, a continued investigation into Blackness and Diaspora made annually on the anniversary of the Empire Windrush docking in the UK on June 22nd 1948.
