The resistance of others

The Resistance of Others: an intimate conversation with Akala and Ken Fero, followed by a screening of the film Injustice

Saturday 08th June - 2pm - Chalvey PWA

Join MOBO award winning rap artist Akala for an intimate live performance and audience Q&A session with Migrant Media's director Ken Fero, followed by a screening of his film 'Injustice'.

Ken's award winning film 'Injustice' documents over 2000 police custody deaths that have occurred since records began in 1969. The film narrates stories of the struggles for justice by the families of those that have died in police custody. It sheds light on the fact that there has never been a successful prosecution of police officers, and human rights abuses continue despite overwhelming evidence. The film has won several awards at the BFM London Film Festival and One World Film Festival, including the best documentary for human rights.

Migrant Media is a group of radical film-makers with a focus on work about resistance, race and class. Leading the group is director Ken Fero, who's work visually documents experiences in various communities since 1989 in television and cinema production. Migrant Media has a strong community grounding with an international reputation for challenging and innovative work.
