Ken Fero: Burn and PoPo

Thursday 24th November 2016 at 7pm

“…pulls no punches and dares to question the established view of the 2011 riots and the murder of Mark Duggan.” - Institute of Race Relations on Burn

“…one of the most powerful films ever made in this country.” - The Guardian on Injustice

Ken Fero is a UK documentary filmmaker and political activist noted for his longstanding career highlighting human rights abuses in Britain and Europe. In particular he has campaigned alongside the families of people who have died in police custody over many years. In 2001 his award winning film Injustice, banned by Channel 4, received critical praise and helped usher in reforms regarding the investigations of custodial deaths in the UK.

Over the years Ken has spoken at the BFI and the European Parliament. His work pulls no punches - provocative, challenging and political.

There will be a screening of two of Ken’s most recent short films - Burn and Po Po - dealing with issues including policing, race and inequality in the UK. There will also be a chance to discuss the films and the issues raised by them in a Q&A with him and other people involved with campaigns seeking to highlight the issue of deaths in police custody.
