Event description

Description

We're excited to have the opportunity to screen Generation Revolution in collaboration with the filmmakers of the documentary. This work, our work, is now and forever about the revolution. This documentary is particularly powerful and personal for Power U as we encourage youth leadership within the movement. We're grateful to 'Black and Brown' and to the filmmakers for allowing us to bring this story to Miami!




"Generation Revolution brings to screen the powerful story of a new generation of black and brown activists who are changing the social and political landscape in the capital and beyond. This feature-length documentary film follows an exciting new breed of organisations as well as the young Londoners that are part of them.

The London Black Revolutionaries, or ‘Black Revs’, have a predilection for dramatic, raucous, direct action: from sabotaging anti-homeless spikes; organising a die-in at the Westfield shopping centre to staging a “Black Brunch” against gentrification. Younger than the Black Revs, R Movement challenge the idea of the ‘Staid and Serious’ political activist. Having formed on social media, they’ve turned online debate into political action. Born out of irreconcilable differences with the Black Revs, The Black Dissidents are a new organisation intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class and gender.

The film vividly chronicles the evolution of our characters as they experience personal and political awakenings, breakthroughs and, at times, disillusionment. Generation Revolution offers a unique and original glimpse into the rewarding but difficult path that must be trodden in the struggle for personal, social and political liberation."
