SQIFF 2019
LUX Scotland presents: where did we land + Fi Dem I & II

Wed 2 October 2019

London-based curator and artist Rabz Lansiquot screens their new moving image essay where did we land, an ongoing experiment interrogating the effect of images of anti-black violence produced and reproduced in film and media, and parts 1 and 2 of artist Zinzi Minott’s Fi Dem Series, a continued investigation into Blackness and Diaspora made annually on the anniversary of the Empire Windrush docking in the UK on June 22nd 1948.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Rabz Lansiquot about their research on moving beyond representation and towards liberation in Black film, and how queerness informs their approach.

In partnership with LUX Scotland, a non-profit agency dedicated to supporting, developing, and promoting artists’ moving image practices in Scotland.
