Being Blacker

Dir. Molly Dineen
2018, 90min

 

Made with intimacy and insight, this is the story of Blacker Dread, a renowned reggae producer and record shop owner from Brixton, the traditional home of London’s Jamaican migrants. Focused on a tumultuous time in Blacker’s life—the death of his mother and the prospect of his first prison sentence—the documentary widens to become an affecting portrait of Blacker’s family and friends. The film then makes its way to Jamaica, where Blacker’s partner, Maureen, is ensuring their young son maintains exceptional grades, having been excluded from school in the UK. With boundless empathy for its subjects, Being Blacker offers an excellent understanding of the challenges that Britain’s Caribbean community continues to face.

 
For Gregorio

Dir. Cristobal Guerra
2017, 9min

 

Gregorio Guerra migrated from Puerto Rico to New York in 1964. More than 40 years later, we catch a glimpse of his current life in Queens.
