In association with LUX, the ICO’s 2020 national film tour Second Sight explores the legacy, methods, aesthetic strategies and histories of the UK’s Black Film Workshop Movement. A key film of the movement, Martina Attille’s Dreaming Rivers (1988) illustrates the spirit of modern families touched by the experience of migration. Awarded a prestigious Filmdukaten at the XXXVII Internationale Filmwoche Mannheim in 1988, the film evocatively weaves together the ambition-fuelled dreams and memories of Caribbean-born Miss T and her family.

Dreaming Rivers will be screened alongside two films by Glasgow based artist, filmmaker and programmer, Tako Taal, who will also introduce the screening.
