The Uprising - Film Screening (Edinburgh)

The Uprising
Fri 29 Nov 2019 7:00pm to 9:30pm
Augustine United Church
41 George IV Bridge

Screening of the documentary "The Uprising" (1h 33m) and Q&A with filmmaker Pravini Baboeram.

Pravini says:

"This film tells the story I was looking for but couldn’t find. Countless films have been made that touch on issues related to racism. But very few of them actually address the link with the colonial past and the common challenges different communities of color face. And none of the films I encountered focus on the European context and current struggles of people of color."

The Uprising zooms in on collective challenges of communities of color. In 9 self-written songs Pravini connects the fight against Blackface, the struggle for the recognition of colonial crimes that the Netherlands has committed in Indonesia, the fight for the liberation of Palestine and the struggle in the political field for an inclusive society. “The Uprising” offers a unique view of the resistance against racism in Europe through the eyes of people of color.
