Di Journey

EVENT DESCRIPTION

 

Di Journey is a socio-historical documentary comprehensively exploring immigration and race relations through the chronicles of the African-Caribbean community in Britain. 
It follows the dramatic multi-generational mobilisation of the British Caribbean people to settle in and change modern Britain. It's also a story about the rebellious spirit and important cultural contribution of this community to a uniquely vibrant and diverse London and Albion. 
Di Journey is comprised of 12 chapters and covers ground from the colonisation of Jamaica up to the present day issues the Black community is confronted with in the UK. Among the interviewed are prominent British intellectuals, academics, life-long activists and artists. 
There's an academic sociological, historical and culturological line along with a parallel emphasis on the existential/personal experience, including through the stories of 4 members from 3 generations of a London Jamaican family - the Baileys.
