Abstract

The Black Audio Film Collective (1982–1998)—known for films such as Handsworth Songs (John Akomfrah, UK, 1988)—and Sankofa Film and Video were the two key black British independent filmmaking collectives in the United Kingdom under Thatcherism. Influenced by critical theory, in this manifesto by filmmaker John Akomfrah we see both the recognition of the growing number of black British collectives and the concurrent recognition that an independent support network needed to be established to help develop film and video production in minoritarian communities. As well as a statement of purpose, this manifesto outlines the goals of the Black Audio Film Collective in addressing these pressing political and cultural needs.
