jus soli trailer

October 1, 2015

Watch the trailer for experimental film ‘JUS SOLI’. The short film (which has been officially selected for Raindance Film Festival) centers on the under represented tragedy of 13 British youths killed in The New Cross House Fire, 18th January 1981 – starring actor Nicholas Pinnock, and featuring poetry from acclaimed dub-poet Linton Kwesi Johnson.

Its creators, London film collective Somebody Nobody, say that the film “charts the changing emotions of Britain’s Black population, from a Caribbean on the SS Windrush: full of hope and love for the “motherland” to a disaffected British youth angry, alienated and marginalised in British society. Splicing together archive footage, filmed scenes, sounds and images to build an image of Britain struggling to relinquish it’s colonial powers.”

Catch a screening of the film tomorrow (October 2nd) 12:00pm Vue Piccadilly, 19 Lower Regent Street, London SW1Y 4LR
