White Riot, Govanhill International Festival
Friday 21 August, 2020, 7. p.m. – 10 p.m.
Screening, Q & A and Afterparty
It’s three years since the first Govanhill Festival took inspiration from the Rock Against Racism (RAR) movement and hosted ‘Roots, Rock, Reggae Against Racism’ in Queen’s Park bandstand with Aswad, Misty In Roots, Black Roots, and more.
Glasgow Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) has since taken its own inspiration from that momentous movement as a new generation forges unity through the power of music, in the struggle against racism and the rise of the far right.
Glasgow LMHR, Smoking Bear and Modern Films, with Glasgow Film Theatre, will virtually screen this special festival preview of Rubika Shah’s award-winning film White Riot, documenting the RAR movement and its 1978 Carnival Against The Nazis, plus a panel discussion with the director, home grown RAR punks and special guests. The night concludes with a special LMHR Living Room Afterparty.
