Our monthly series Doc/Nights makes its return to our Cinema screen on Thursday 22nd of August. This month we're joining forces with BFI and Doc'n Roll to bring you an exclusive screening of RUDEBOY: The Story of Trojan Records followed by a Q&A plus DJ Set.
A film about the love affair between Jamaican and British Youth culture, told through the prism of one of the most iconic record labels in history, TROJAN RECORDS.
Combining archive footage, interview and drama, RUDEBOY tells the story of Trojan Records by placing it at the heart of a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and dancefloors of late 60s and early 70s Britain, and how that period of immigration and innovation transformed popular music and culture.
Told by a cast of legendary artists including Lee Scratch Perry, Toots Hibbert, Ken Boothe, Neville Staple, Marcia Griffiths, Dave Barker, Dandy Livingstone, Lloyd Coxsone, Pauline Black, Derrick Morgan and more.
The screening will be hosted in our 100-seat cinema space; the event is free with booking required. A very limited number of walk-in tickets will be available on the day, on a first come, first served basis.
Celebrating 60 years of sound system culture in London, a pop-up exhibition in collaboration with the Museum of Youth Culture journeys through the grass roots spirit of the DIY speaker stacks responsible for transforming the face of music in Britain.
This event is supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery.
