How are Black people excluded/included within spaces and how does this relate to the wider context of their identities? Black Spatial Imaginaries explores the fluidity (often not by choice) of Black communities through the concept of Black Geographies. The films deal with a spectrum of topics such as environmental racism, gentrification, queerness, and the importance of community.

Programme 2
How do we begin to think about the physicality of bodies within spaces and places? Who gets to occupy a space and how?

Afro-Futurism/Surrealism can be deployed as methods to interrogate the boundaries of a given spatial location through the reimagining of its capabilities through a collective Blackness.

Towards a Black Testimony by Languid Hands layers archival footage over an audio essay that feels often times uncertain when discussing the past and present of Black identities. Is a Black testimony possible?

When I Get Home is the visual accompaniment for the album of the same name.  Paying homage to her hometown of Houston, Solange creates her version of home through a collective Black presence.  What is home, if not a space where we can re/imagine our own narrative? 

Followed by a response to the themes explored within the films.

Curated by Film Hub Scotland New Promoter Natasha Ruwona.

This screening is captioned for D/deaf and Hard-of-Hearing audiences.
