Celebration is protest at Leeds West Indian Carnival. A look at forms of authority, A Protest, A Celebration, A Mixed Message asks who is performing and who has power. Following Mama Dread’s, a troupe whose carnival theme is Caribbean immigration to the UK, we are asked to consider the visibility of black bodies, particularly in rural spaces.
A Protest, A Celebration, A Mixed Message screens as part of Inglan My Inglan: United Kingdom Shorts on Saturday, February 8 at 6:00 pm.
