"A riot is the language of the unheard"
- Martin Luther King
We want to extend an invitation to watch with us an interesting and eye-opening film that had come out of the UK in the 1980's. The film, Franco Rosso’s Babylon, was banned in both the UK and the U.S. after its release, for fear of inciting riots and violence within their respective Black communities. The confronting depiction of racial prejudice and the reactions to that prejudice within that film are worth focusing on as plot points, however, the richness in the film stems from the depictions of community/culture making from the diasporic residents of London at that time. We'd like to watch with you all at Bar Bario.
As part of our Sonic Lecture is a vibe series we want to gather with others, as we watch this film, to think together about what it means to relate to immaterial concepts and attitudes such as 'vibe' and 'coolness'? What roles do such (im)material concepts play in cultural and artistic productions and practices? And how is this expressed within urban arts & culture or society?
