Raoul Peck | France/USA | 2016 | 93m | 12A

Lady Macbeth

Before his death in 1987, African-American writer James Baldwin was working on a book a personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends - Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. Here, that uncompleted book is revived using Baldwin’s original words and a flood of rich archival material. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America narrated by Samuel L Jackson.

“A staggering achievement. It’s an exhilarating blast of focused fury”, Empire Magazine.

 

Contains images of real violence, racist and strong language.

Akong – A Remarkable Life

One of the best reviewed films of the year, a brilliantly subversive take on liberal America masquerading as a low budget horror flick. Chris, a young African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend's mysterious family estate.
