Menelik Shabazz's pioneering first feature was shot around the Notting Hill and Ladbroke Grove communities and has remained a landmark in British cinema. A film about transformation and identity, it is also a love story that traces the emotional and political growth of a young black couple in Thatcher's London, and the first British film to give a central voice to a black woman, charting her journey to emotional maturity, emancipation and political awakening. We celebrate 30 years of a film that is no less relevant today. We  will welcome special guests from the original cast, Menelik Shabbaz will take questions  and there will be a special presentation from Screen Nation to mark his outstanding career and the 30th anniversary of the film.
