19/06/2020

  • Punk
  • Reggae/Dub

Even though the cinemas are closed, we’re getting launch of White Riot, a brand new documentary film by Rubika Shah, telling the story of Rock Against Racism and Temporary Hoarding magazine, set in a UK stricken by racial tensions.

The film follows the Rock Against Racism movement of the 1970s, revealing both the nastiness of the rising National Front at the time and the amazing power of music, activism and a real desire for social change at a grassroots level. Winner of Best Documentary at BFI London Film Festival.

Bill Brewster is a DJ, author, journalist and cultural historian - and was there in the front row during the Rock Against Racism movement. He’s selected a mix of music that was around and inspirational at the time - lots of reggae, some punk and some post-punk.

We're hosting a virtual afterparty, and are delighted to bring three huge talents to the table - DJ and author Bill Brewster, who was down at the front when it all happened, Hollie Cook, the UK reggae phenomenon and member of The Slits, and Dennis Morris, the legendary photographer who was always in the right place at the right time.
