The Passion of Remembrance

This first feature film by one of Britain's most respected workshops, is a multi-layered look at issues of concern to Black youth during the turbulent 80s--the Thatcher era. Combining documentary footage and allegorical monologues, the narrative follows Maggie Baptise, a young British-born West Indian, grappling with race, sex and family and friends. This richly complex film interconnects story lines and varied characters that heighten the debate, particularly about sexual politics.

Reviews
"really radical filmmaking...the filmmakers intend to raise the intelligence and consciousness of their audience."
- Armond White, FILM COMMENT
