A Charmed Life + Hanging out Caribbean Style + panel with directors and special guests
Two films marking the 75th anniversary of Windrush
These two films, marking Windrush 75, explore the contribution of post-war Caribbean migration to life in the UK. Veteran airman Eddie Noble, the subject of A Charmed Life, inspired Andrea Levy’s Small Island. Here, he tells his real-life story – one of struggle and achievement that stands today as legacy for future generations.
Caribbean Style vividly highlights youth culture in the 1960s, which took the country by storm. Fuelled by sounds and styles arriving from the Caribbean, it drew together young people from various cultures into a shared space, promoting mutual understanding.
Tickets £6.50. https://bit.ly/3pDvqlh
