Black Audio Film Collective

Feb 24—Feb 27, 2014

Between 1982 and 1998, the Black Audio Film Collective—a pioneering group of seven British artists and thinkers—produced an extraordinary body of poetic, allusive, and intensely personal films, videos, and “slide-tape texts” that chronicled England’s multicultural past and present and pushed the boundaries of the documentary form. BAMcinématek celebrates BAFC co-founder John Akomfrah’s acclaimed new film The Stuart Hall Project, which premiered at Sundance in 2013, with a four-day retrospective of the vital and visionary group.
