Do you have your Valentine’s Weekend plans sorted yet?
LOOKING FOR LOVE (PG) by director Menelik Shabazz
An evening exploring love in the 21st Century followed by a Q&A with the director and guests.
‘The prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets, the prettiest eyes have cried the most tears and the kindest hearts have felt the most pain.’
Despite modern advances in communication technology, many people face loneliness and depression. Modern living seems to be at odds with the quality of life associated with the holy grail of inner contentment. With the economic empowerment of women roles expectations have become confusing for both sexes. Many are increasingly opting out into the world of single-dom. Yet underneath all this is the deep need to be loved.
This no holds barred documentary from a leading British filmmaker combines frank, intimate and humorous interviews alongside carnival footage and spoken word to explore modern relationships. The film is focused on the UK’s Black British community as a microcosm of British society. Individuals, groups, psychologists and comedians consider love, sex, intimacy and forgiveness.
Contributors include African American Psychologist and National Certified School Psychologist Dr Umar Johnson and relationship authors Susan Quilliam and Jackie Holder. Kojo, Andi Osho, Eddie Kadi, Slim, Mr Cee, Donna Spence and Glenda Jaxson add insightful humour to a subject that we all talk about.
You can bring your children. There will be a separate film showing for them (title tbc).
