Filmmaking as Resistance: Ken Fero and Tahera Aziz

A forensic examination of the attempted murder of a film – Ken Fero

Outlining the work of media activist collective Migrant Media we explore documentary practice as radical process in challenging dominant media and state narratives on race and resistance. A model of praxis is explored through collectivity in cultural production, working with communities of interest to reach global audiences with impact.

Transformative encounters: Harnessing sound and documentary practice outside the field of vision to tackle racism – Tahera Aziz

The global movement of Black Lives Matter following the killing of George Floyd has highlighted the urgent need to end police brutality and counter racism and structural inequality in society. In the UK, the widespread protests have led to the government announcing a new inquiry – the commission on race and ethnic disparities to examine 'all aspects of inequality'. This move has been criticised for letting the government off the hook.

Registration is encouraged, but not required.
