Generation Revolution brings to screen the powerful story of a new generation of black and brown activists who are changing the social and political landscape in the capital and beyond. This feature-length documentary film follows an exciting new breed of organisations as well as the young Londoners that are part of them. The London Black Revolutionaries, or ‘Black Revs’, have a predilection for dramatic, raucous, direct action. R Movement challenge the idea of the ‘Staid and Serious’ political activist and The Black Dissidents are a new organisation intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class and gender. The film vividly chronicles the evolution of our characters as they experience personal and political awakenings, breakthroughs and, at times, disillusionment. Generation Revolution offers a unique and original glimpse into the rewarding but difficult path that must be trodden in the struggle for personal, social and political liberation. The Co-directors of Generation Revolution, Usayd Younis and Cassie Quarless, are part of a panel discussion at 6.30pm discussing social and political action in film. Buy tickets for both events for just £15/£12 members. This event is put on in partnership with JW3, London's new state-of-the-art Jewish arts and community centre in Finchley Road which runs a huge range of events and activities which are open to all.
