A FAMILY CALLED ABREW AND A MAN'S STORY
FRIDAY, July 26 @ 6PM

A FAMILY CALLED ABREW/A MAN'S STORY

A FAMILY CALLED ABREW
This documentary profiles a fascinating family that has been based in Scotland since the end of the 19th century. It also traces the history of people of African descent living in Europe before the great migrations of the 1950s and 1960s. The Abrew family worked in Vaudeville, theatre, and later, in film made throughout Europe where they faced racial discrimination and exoticization as performers for primarily white audiences. Interviews, family photographs and archival footage weave a poignant story of the endurance and solidarity of a growing Black community in an isolating and hostile land.

Directed by Maureen Blackwood, 1992, 42 min, UK, Documentary, English

A MAN'S STORY

A MAN'S STORY profiles Ozwald Boateng, his design, his business, his personal life. Charismatic, glamorous, hard-working and very humanly flawed, Boateng's personal and professional triumphs and set-backs are the fascinating heart of this film which is set against a back-drop of models, movie stars and fabulous locations.

A Black British who has broken the glass ceiling, Ozwald Boateng is a fascinating character who inspires us to be and do our best!  Features interviews with Laurence Fishburne, Spike Lee, Jamie Foxx, Jessie Jackson, and many more.

Directed by Varon Bonicos, UK, 2010, 98min, documentary in English
