Bristol preview screening of Molly Dineen’s Being Blacker


01 March 2018




After a ten year absence, acclaimed filmmaker Molly Dineen is back with a new feature documentary, Being Blacker an intimate, 90-minute portrait of Jamaican-born reggae producer, businessman, father, son, and community pillar, Blacker Dread.

Forty years after featuring in Dineen’s first film, Blacker, his extended family, friends and community in South London, face the combined challenges of rapid social change, gentrification, inequality, poverty, crime and racism as they seek to secure their futures.

Made with intimacy and warmth, the film takes us deep into Blacker’s world and, through his eyes, offers a rarely-heard perspective on life in Britain today.

BBC2 is hosting a series of invitation-only screenings and events to introduce ‘Being Blacker’ before broadcast, and to hear from audience members from black communities about how to maximise the impact of BBC Documentary in creating dialogue about the crucial social issues of our times.

Join BBC2, Ujima Radio and Black South West Network for a special preview screening in Bristol at 6.30pm on Saturday 3rd of March at The Cube Cinema to hear from Blacker Dread and filmmaker Molly Dineen interviewed by Kevin Phillimore.
