About this Event

Babylon is a 1980 British drama film directed by Franco Rosso. Written by Franco Rosso and Martin Stellman (Quadrophenia), and shot by two-time Academy Award winner Chris Menges (The Killing Fields), Babylon is an incendiary portrait of racial tension and police brutality set in Brixton, London. The film, anchored by Dennis Bovell’s propulsive score, is partly based on Bovell’s false imprisonment for running a sound system, Sufferer’s Hi Fi, in the mid-70s.

 

Produced by Gavrik Losey and the National Film Finance Corporation, the film is regarded as a classic
