Join us Tuesday, March 5, at 6 pm, for a screening of Maureen Blackwood and Isaac Julien’s The Passion of Remembrance (1986, UK, 82 min., 4K restoration). Blackwood and Julien’s Sankofa Collective’s influential first film is a landmark work in British avant-garde film and video. It ambitiously explores themes of racism, homophobia, sexism, and generational tensions as embodied in the reality known by a Black British family over the years.

Experience a single-channel film from Julien’s early career, in contrast to the immersive, multi-channel experience of the exhibition Isaac Julien: Lessons of the Hour, on view in the Malloy Wing through May 19, 2024. This screening is part of the Tang’s ongoing series Whole Grain: Experiments in Film & Video.
