"Wheel n Come Again"; derriving from Jamaican patois to rewind, replay, take something back and play it, or bring it over again. Rewind. Replay. Review. #WheelnComeAgain
Wheel n Come Again is a dynamic arts and film programme funded by Film Hub SE and Arts Council England. It presents an autumn series of film screenings across Brighton and Hastings, showing short and feature length films from the African and Caribbean diaspora, with artists presenting and engaging audiences in their explorations and responses to the themes.
The programme includes:
feature films Born in Flames, Lizzie Borden (1983, 90 mins, US); Pelo Malo (Bad Hair), Mariana Rondón (2013, 85 mins, Venezuela); What My Mother Told Me, Frances Anne Solomon (1995, 57 mins, Trinidad & Tobago) and The Passion of Rememberance, Isaac Julien & Maureen Blackwood (1986, 95 mins, UK).
short films Water Ritual #1, Barbara McCullough (1979, 6 mins, US ); Auntie, Lisa Harewood (2013, 16 mins, Barbados); and two additional short films TBC.
A unique aspect of Wheel n Come Again is that it brings together 4 Black female film curators/programmers (Althea Wolfe, Issey Osman, Maria Cabrera and Debbie Plentie) and 4 Black female artists - Tokini Fubara (animation), Monika Akila Richards (spoken word), Leslie Farah Marem (photography) and Carla Armour (mixed media/installation)- who will create new art works in response to the films, exhibiting and presenting these along the way.
We are launching with a film screening and discussion on 7 September as part of Scalarama in Brighton, followed by collaborations with Brighton PhotoFringe, Fabrica, and showcases as part of Black History Month, to name a few.
The programme runs from Sept until December and includes film, exhibitions and interactive art events in and around Brighton, and Hastings.
