This screening is followed by a panel discussion with Ngozi Onwurah, producer Simon Onwurah, Hilja Lindsay-Muwonge (actress, Flight of the Swan) and Sian Ejiwumi-Le Berre (actress, The Body Beautiful)

Pioneer of Black British cinema Ngozi Onwurah’s body of work weaves autobiographical narrative with astute socio-political observation. The first Black British woman filmmaker to have a feature film released in UK cinemas, this is a celebration of Ngozi’s legacy, with a screening of rare works followed by a panel discussion.
