CREAM Screen presents:
Kaddu Beykat (Lettre Paysanne/Letter from my Village), Safi Faye 1976
A rare and timely opportunity to see Safi Faye’s 1976 docu-drama Kaddu Beykat (Letter from my Village), considered to be the first feature film made by a Sub-Saharan African woman. Taking the form of a letter narrated by the filmmaker, the film is set in the filmmaker’s native village of Fadjal, Senegal, with the villages playing themselves. Ostensibly centred on a love story between two youths from the village, the film chronicles the agricultural day to day life and the problems caused by the inherited colonial peanut monoculture.
The screening will be introduced and followed by a discussion between Uriel Orlow (CREAM, University of Westminter), Shela Sheikh (Goldsmiths College) and Ros Gray (Goldsmiths College) focusing on the pertinent economic and ecological issues raised in the film.
To accompany the screening, Uriel Orlow will launch his exhibition publication 'Soil Affinities’.

THE BLUEBLACK HUSSAR
An engrossing portrait of a true English original, The Blueblack Hussar is Jack Bond’s ride through the world of Adam Ant. The iconic pop star, who was perhaps the biggest music star on the planet during his halcyon days in the 1980s, disappeared completely from public life when he suffered a recurrence of the depression that has inflicted him since he was a young man. Sectioned and forcibly sedated, few would have anticipated his return from this particularly tortuous exile. Featuring the likes of Charlotte Rampling, Mark Ronson, Allen Jones, John Robb and Jamie Reynolds, this is a film exploring the road back for a unique British pop star, one still channeling his Highwayman/Prince Charming persona and who has, against all the odds, got himself back to playing to huge audiences once again, unapologetically and without compromise. The Blueblack Hussar is a hugely enjoyable tribute to a great musical legend.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director Jack Bond hosted by Travis Elborough
