The Nine Muses

A documentary on the experience of migration to post-war Britain

Using a collage of quotations and clips, experimental film maker John Akomfrah’s created a kinda trippy/existentialist narrative. Its part documentary, part personal essay format allows for multiple interpretations, but what you can’t escape is the rigidly difficult circumstances for those determined to make it to our fair land. It’s a thoughtful production, if at least nothing else. ‘The monochrome news clips of Britain Akomfrah finds always look wintry and cold, and some of the poverty looks as if it could have been photographed at any time in the previous 100 years.’ - Guardian. General admission. The film is rated PG. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis.
