Generation Revolution is a documentary that brings to the screen the powerful story of a new generation of black and brown activists who are changing the social and political landscape in Great Britain. It follows a trio of organisations as well as the young Londoners that are part of them. The London Black Revolutionaries have a predilection for dramatic, direct action; R Movement challenge the idea of the “staid and serious” political activist; and the Black Dissidents are a new group intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class and gender. The film chronicles the evolution of its 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.
Co-Director Cassie Quarless will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
Note: Generation Revolution will be preceded by a screening of the short film Chantravay.
