Fruitvale Film Club

Venue: Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square

The London Campaign Against Police and State Violence is a friends- and family-led campaign group opposing all forms of police and state brutality against communities in London and beyond. We put on a monthly free film screening to provide a space where it is possible to enjoy an interesting movie but also to share and discuss experiences of violence, objectification, oppression and harassment. This could include intrusions such as constant stop and search, or physical violence, or the everyday stress of being made to feel you somehow have to account for yourself and your experiences of racism. We're now back from a year's hiatus and we've planned a great line-up of films for the coming year. Fruitvale Film Club takes place on the first Saturday of every month (in term-time), 2-5pm. We've shown a diverse range of films in the past (Fruitvale Station, Pressure, Candyman, Poetic Justice and the anti-psychiatric abuse documentary Whose Mind is it Anyway? - John's Story). Anyone is welcome at our events and anyone is welcome to suggest future films for us to show and discuss.

We re-launch at 43 Gordon Square with Raoul Peck's acclaimed new documentary about the legendary writer and activist James Baldwin: I Am Not Your Negro.
