- 8:30 pm

Black Cultural Archives | £9.21
We bring you director Rebecca Graham’s mesmerising film, S.O.U.L of A Black Woman as an open love letter to black women.
As well as the screening, the director will join us for an open conversation about her film that acknowledges pain, trauma and hurts, yet remembers that black women have gifts to guide them to lives that will have them thrive to their heart’s content.
In a potent mixture of mixed-media and Afrofuturism, S.O.U.L of A Black Woman is split into four heart chapters that represent what it is to be a black woman.
Each chapter is accompanied by unique music and heartfelt spoken word poetry to take you through the passages of time.
S.O.U.L of A Black Woman doesn’t pander to any stereotypical representations, it finds its own intuitive pathway to reveal the hearts of black women.
With a burgeoning array of images of black women in film, it can be confusing to identify the representations that bring truth to the wholistic humanity of black women. S.O.U.L of A Black Woman is unapologetic in its analysis and subsequent revelation of this woman.
Rebecca Graham is a rising star of the UK independent filmmaking fraternity. Limitlessly talented, the writer, director, producer and editor has built her filmmaking career of over 10 years collecting a string of accolades along her way.

Come and share the warmth as we watch a love letter sweeter than a lullaby with soothing words for our hearts.
