Film4 and Fruit Tree Media present Foresight, a compilation of short films set in the UK that imagine the future for Black and Brown characters. Written, directed, and produced by culturally diverse filmmakers who call the UK home, Foresight is an urgent anthology that explores alternate realities through the lens of five Black British directors. This time capsule collection contributes to a perspective and point of view continually missing from our screens… a future where people of colour exist!
Please note this screening and performance contains flashing images.
As part of their nationwide Who We Are season which celebrates Black Cinema from around the world, We Are Parable are delighted to bring these brilliant films to HOME.
