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.

Hollie Cook is a UK reggae singer and keyboardist. As well as her own releases, she was part of the last line up of The Slits, and has put together a mix of music that reflects her response to the film.
