Part of Camden Market’s BLM screening week, a open-air screening of Pressure

About this Event

Tony is a second-generation Black British teenager, born and raised in Britain. The rest of his family — his mother, father, and older brother — were born in Trinidad in the Caribbean. This affects the family members’ viewpoints about the society they live in. Tony’s mother says they, as Black people, must work hard, mind their business and respect white people’s laws because the whites have the power.

The film shows how the older generations are satisfied with living in a society ruled by the white English, which differs from the views of the younger generation. There is a disconnection between the way Tony feels about Britain and the way that his family feels, specifically his brother. Tony’s brother is active in the Black Power movement and is constantly discussing how Black people are treated as second-class citizens and constantly have to deal with systematic racism. He stresses the idea of a collective effort on behalf of Black people, as they encompas their culture and consciousness and they must spread this consciousness.
