Join season programmer David Somerset, cultural producer, writer and feminist activist Chardine Taylor-Stone and Voice4Change’s Kunle Olulode for a lavishly illustrated intro to this groundbreaking season. The talk will consider the wider challenge of programming such a season, as well as its origins in the BFI’s unique African Odysseys film strand – now in its 11th year – which is programmed in conjunction with the African and African-Caribbean community of London.
Chardine Taylor Stone is an award winning cultural producer, writer and feminist activist. Her work is inspired by her experiences as a Black British working class woman having found her voice through alternative subcultures like Punk and Rockabilly. She was featured in The Voice newspaper as one of the Women Who Rocked the World in 2015, Diva Magazine’s LGBT Power List 2016 and Buzzfeed’s ‘The Most Inspiring British LGBT People Of 2016’.!
