A landmark for Black—and Queer—British film, Isaac Julien’s iconic, beautifully crafted 1991 period piece has been newly remastered by the BFI. A convincing picture of late 70’s London, youth culture meets identity politics in this part-thriller, part-gay love story set days before the Queen’s Silver Jubilee celebrations. The hedonistic world of pirate DJs Chris and Caz is shattered when a close friend is killed while cruising in the local park. The black community suspect the National Front, but the police have other ideas. – British Film Institute 

“Fresh, buoyant, likable, and emotionally open… This film still has a life-giving pulse of energy.” — Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
