In the last few years there has been a notable shift in the way in which exciting narratives about people of colour are being told particularly by independent filmmakers.

The organisers of this event (Thenublk, ADTV, Pristine Prospects) would like to continue the dialogue which has already been formed between the UK and the US by hosting a screenin of Newlyweeds.

The film which was selected as one of the Sundance Film Festival's 2013 programme is Director Shaka King’s feature debut.

"Newlyweeds provokes a thoughtful meditation on the habits that hinder modern relationships, navigating through the perilous and comedic with a natural ease and restraint. Craftily luring the stoner-comedy into a meaningful examination of dependency in all its forms, King confronts a community that refuses to grow up and asks the audience what it really means to be an adult."
- Sundance

On the night, we will be joined by actor, philanthropist and producer of the film Gbenga Akinnagbe who will be taking part in a Q&A.

Gbenga who is best known for his role as Chris Partlow in the iconic series The Wire has also starred in The Taking of Pelham 123, Big Words, and Law & Order. He is also due to star alongside Keifer Sutherland in the exciting hit series 24 which returns to screens next month.

Please note: The event will be filmed and photographed.
