BHM Film Fest: BADDDDD SONIA SANCHEZ

Wednesday 26 October

Deemed “a lion in literature’s forest” by poet Maya Angelou, for 81-year-old Sonia Sanchez, writing is both a personal and political act. A seminal figure in the 1960s Black Arts Movement, she raised her voice in the name of Black culture, civil rights, women’s liberation, and peace. A poet, playwright, teacher, activist and early champion of the spoken word, Sanchez’s life unfolds in a documentary rich with readings and jazzaccompanied performances of her work.

Dir: Barbara Attie, Janet Goldwater, Sabrina Schmidt Gordon, 90 min, 2015, unrated.

Time: 7pm Tickets: £8.60 | £6.90 concessions | £6 student
