Film: Young Soul Rebels (1991)
  • Jill Craigie Cinema, Plymouth University

Save event

In his first narrative feature film, director Isaac Julien aimed to champion "black independent cinema, which deals with questions of sexuality, gender and national identity".

In the long hot summer of 1977, London prepared for the Silver Jubilee celebrations to the sounds of the burgeoning punk, soul and funk scenes. Soul boys Chris and Caz, a pair of pirate radio DJs, broadcast their show from a friend's garage, tussling with the local skinheads and clubbing with Chris' sassy music-industry girlfriend Tracy. But, social and sexual tensions in the community reach boiling point following the murder of a local black gay man.

Introduced by Steven Paige, Associate Lecturer in Fine Art at Plymouth University.
