SOUL OF A NATION: Tate-commissioned films and Process

Join us for a night of cinema and vibes!

In response to the Soul of a Nation exhibition Friday 25th August @Tate Modern (Starr Cinema) will host a free display of short films inspired by four artists featured in the Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power exhibition. Each filmmaker responds in their own stylistic way to the content and narrative explored in the subject’s art. The looped display is followed by a special screening of Process, a Sampha film directed by Kahlil Joseph.
