Own history?

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?

The next Cinema of Ideas will be held on 9 October 2007 in the Studio, BFI Southbank, Belvedere Road, London SE1 at 6.40pm.

Guests TBC
