Cast Film Club: Friday 15th December

Cast Film Club Presents:
Finding Fanon by Larry Achiampong & David Blandy

Fri 15th December, 7:30pm
Free admission, all welcome

Artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy work collaboratively and share an interest in popular culture and the postcolonial position.

Finding Fanon is a series of films inspired by the lost plays of Frantz Fanon, a radical humanist whose work explored the mental distress caused by colonisation and the social and cultural consequences of decolonisation. Achiampong and Blandy negotiate Fanon’s ideas, examining how the politics of race, racism and societal issues affect our relationships in an age of new technology, pop culture and globalisation.

They will take part in a live Skype Q&A following the screening with programme curator Kelly Taylor.

CAST Café food from 6.30pm, something hot and something sweet for £6.50.

This will be the last screening in the current season of CAST Film Club.

The public programme at CAST is supported by Arts Council England, as part of Groundwork 2016-18, which has been awarded Ambition for Excellence funding. Ambition for Excellence is a new programme aimed at stimulating and supporting ambition, talent and excellence across the arts sector in England. The fund aims to have significant impact on the growth of an ambitious international-facing arts infrastructure, especially outside London.
