SATURDAY 22 JULY 2023 (A–Z) // What’s on in London today across DIY, indie & alternative cinema including one-off screen events, film seasons, film festivals & our selection of new releases.
African Odysseys: PASSING THROUGH d. Larry Clark, 1977 + Intro/Q&A with Kevin Le Gendre & Tony Kofi at BFI Southbank (22 JUL 14:00).
“This rarely screened, largely unavailable, ground-breaking and inventive drama takes an uncompromising look at the lives of black jazz musicians who face immense adversity in their struggle to create one of the world’s greatest art forms. Fresh out of jail and up against an exploitative music business, saxophonist Eddie Warmack needs a guiding light to help him find his way. Larry Clark is a little-known figure in US independent cinema, yet his work provides an invaluable chronicle of a changing country.” (BFI)
