Event Details

The multi award-winning 1000 Londoners project presents a brand new collection of documentary portraits, followed by a discussion with creative director Rachel Wang.

Over ten years, the Chocolate Films flagship project portrays 1000 people who consider themselves to be Londoners, taking in all ages, religions, race, income, interests and opinions. This screening brings together ten new digital portraits exploring the lives of Londoners with Caribbean heritage, from those who arrived in the city in the 40s and 50s, to their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The films include: Jocelyn, the story of the equality campaigner who persuaded shops on Oxford Street to let Black women work on the shop floor; Alex, in which a ground-breaking BBC journalist reminisces about his interviews with Bob Marley, Mohammed Ali and more; and Sara, which follows one of the leaders of the Windrush protests as she campaigns in Parliament Square.
