Free Cinema School Salon: Policing the Crisis with John Akomfrah 

28 February 2013

Acclaimed artist and film-maker John Akomfrah hosted our final Free Cinema School Salon at the former site of the Centre for Possible Studies at Gloucester Place.  He shared archival footage related to the ground breaking study on policing undertaken by Stuart Hall and the Birmingham School in 1978.  A recording of this event will be posted online in the near future.  

John Akomfrah is a filmmaker, lecturer and writer who lives and works in London, U.K. One of the founding members of the Black Audio Film Collective, Akomfrah’s previous films include The Nine Muses (2010), Mnemosyne (2010/11) and Seven Songs for Malcolm X (1993).
