BAC Presents: The Revolution Won’t be Televised (2016)

Battersea Arts Centre brings you a free screening of Rama Thiaw’s rousing documentary about protest and activism in West Africa.

Head of states who relentlessly cling on to power have become colossally negative images.

When President Abdoulaye Wade wanted to run for office yet again in 2011, a resistance movement formed on the streets. Shortly afterwards, a group of school friends, including rappers Thiat and Kilifeu, set up “Y’en a marre” (“We Are Fed Up”), with filmmaker Rama Thiaw soon coming on board to start documenting events – meetings, campaigns, arrests, concerts, states of exhaustion, trips – from an “insider” perspective.

Book free tickets here.

Date: Friday 2 February, 8pm

Price: Free

Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill, SW11 5TN, London, UK

Running Time: 110 mins
