GMAC Film is delighted to welcome the renowned filmmaker and media activist, Ken Fero, to Glasgow where his new film Ultraviolence will be screened. Two decades ago, the police tried to silence Ken’s fearless documentary Injustice. Twenty years later, his follow-up film Ultraviolence does far more than document deaths in police custody. It follows the families who have lost loved ones on their heroic, if thwarted, fights for justice. The screening will take place at Trongate 103 on Friday 30th September, followed by a panel discussion with the following guest speakers:
Aminata Bayoh – Mother of Sheku Bayoh
Kadi Johnson – Sister of Sheku Bayoh
Sharon MacFayden – Aunt of Allan Marshall
Graham Campbell – Glasgow City Councillor
Chaired by Layla-Roxanne Hill – trade unionist and co-author of Black Oot Here: Black Lives in Scotland
Ken will also deliver a filmmaking workshop for aspiring documentary filmmakers and social change activists. For 30 years Ken has directed a number of award-winning and politically controversial films, and he specialises in documentary production and experimental film as well as emerging digital media platforms. Registration for the workshop on Friday 30th September is open here.
