BURNING AN ILLUSION
Saturday, June 28, 2014 @ 6PM

The incinerated illusions are those of Pat Williams, an attractive young Black woman with a steady clerical job, a modest flat in West London, and the ultimate aspiration of settling down to a comfortable middle class married life. These dreams are torn asunder when Williams' boyfriend Del is subjected to an altercation with the police and is subsequently incarcerated.  As Williams is educated on Black politics, what results is the gradual realization that her middle-class aspirations are simply those imposed upon by the white hegemony. Drawn into a reacquaintance with her African heritage and a political awakening, Williams begins to see society more sharply. (United Kingdom, 1981, 107 min, Menelik Shabazz, dir., Romance, Drama)
