The New Black Film Collective is pleased to be partnering with Curzon Home Cinema in delving into titles from around the African Diaspora. The selection reflects the variety and complexity of the black experience but also demonstrates the common humanity that should unite us rather than divide, especially in these politically uncertain times. We take a historic journey from an Oscar-winning dramatisation of bonded oppression in '12 Years A Slave' to the present day premature death of a young black man by police that has sparked the rise of Black Lives Matter in 'Fruitvale Station'. Different flavours of Africa are beautifully and touchingly brought to screen through 'Timbuktu' and 'B is for Boy'. We are also blessed with the home grown 'fish out of water' tale of 'Gone Too Far', written and directed by British Nigerian women, which is in itself, a major leap forward for authentic storytelling, and a standout aspect of this collection. Whether it's a documentary on romance or a bio-pic on the godfather of soul, these titles will bust through the stereotypes to honour the familiar everyday lives of black people.
