Review:

In this special event for history students, comes a blast from the past.

First shown 40 years ago, this was the first British feature film by a black director, Trinidadian Horace Ove.

Tony Walsh (Herbert Norville) has just left school and is trying to navigate his way through racism in 1970s England.

Initially banned from release for two years by the critics, this is truly a piece of cinematic history.
