The Cinema of Ideas considers how ownership of and access to black cinema
is filtered by the annual marking of Black History month. Whose history
is being celebrated? How has it been appropiated and by whom? Is it a
useful rubric for contemporary filmmakers? How much do today's audiences
know or need to know about history when they're watching a film?
next Cinema of Ideas will be held on 9 October 2007 in the Studio, BFI
Southbank, Belvedere Road, London SE1 at 6.40pm.
