Crime, poor education, poverty, self-hatred, incarceration, broken homes plague people of African descent globally, why?

From the onset of the African Holocaust of enslavement and colonialism, Africans are still struggling for basic freedom. Filmed in five continents, 500 Years Later is a critically acclaimed multi award winning timeless and compelling journey, infused with the spirit and music of liberation.

It chronicles the struggle of a people who have fought and continue to fight for the most essential human right – self determination!

Not to be missed!

From 7pm to 9pm

HIC Films July

From Haringey Independent Cinema

Just to let people know about the wonderful films we have for you this month – on Thursday 16th July.

Members of the Mortgage Victims' Platform (PAH) protest against evictions in Barcelona, Tuesday, April 16, 2013.

Members of the Mortgage Victims’ Platform (PAH) protest against evictions in Barcelona, Tuesday, April 16, 2013.

We have a double bill of inspiring films of the little people fighting back against the state and big business. As it’s July we will also be providing free food and drink in the interval, so we all have a chance to relax, socialise and catch up with people we might not have seen for a while.

The first film is about local people in Govenhill in Scotland who fought for and saved their local swimming baths, using tactics that we could all learn from. The director is coming all the way from Scotland to answer questions about the film – just for us. The film is called United We Will Swim.

Then, after the food and drink/break we are showing Si Se Puede (Yes We Can). Continue reading

bfm International Film Festival 2015 (bmiff2015) – Bernie Grant Arts Centre, starts tonight

 Thurs 2nd July to Sunday 5th July.

The acclaimed Black filmmaker International Film Festival 2015 (bfmiff2015) returns! ‘Bringing the unseen to light!’ The landmark film festival is back!

This year’s films hail from countries to include Brazil, Jamaica, Kenya, Japan, the USA and Cameroon.

Included in the features screenings are UK Shorts and World Shorts Programmes. Themes in the film are varied and touch on the human experience in profound ways. We’re equally thrilled to show a strong section of film from women directors especially in the science-fiction genre.

bfmiff2015’s Opening Night film is ‘Looking For Love’, the latest feature from the Director Menelik Shabazz. It enjoyed a sell-out at its Premier in London’s BFI. Workshops and Seminars are centred to the festival.

We’re excited to include in this varied programme ‘Special Effects in the Film Industry’, ‘Breaking the Blockages to Making Your Film’, and ‘Producing a Web Series’.

Book your tickets on BGAC website (external link) or keep up to date with the latest bfmiff2015 information via Twitter @bfmiff (external link) or Facebook (external link). We can’t wait to see you!

If you have a query please call 020 8365 5450 or email boxoffice@berniegrantcentre.co.uk

Next HIC film – Thursday 25th June

From Haringey Independent Cinema

On THURSDAY 25th June we will be showing the Pawel Pawlikowski film MY SUMMER OF LOVE – see below for review.

As ever we are showing the films at the West Green Learning Centre on West Green Road. Doors will open at 7pm and the night will start at 7.15pm. The film is in English but we are afraid that the film doesn’t have sub titles for our deaf friends. For those using dial-a-ride the night should end at 9pm. If you can’t make the film, then why not join us for a drink and chat in KK McCools afterwards.

For all further details like travel etc please check out our website at http://www.haringey.org.uk/hic/

See you Thursday, from all of us at Haringey Independent Cinema
