We will show three short films for David Oluwale, followed by a Q&A with the directors.

Commissioned by Leeds City Art Gallery.

We Are All Migrants (director Rowenna Baldwin, 25 mins), which tells David's story and includes King David Oluwale and his Migrant Masqueraders at Leeds carnival in 2017. See the trailer here https://vimeo.com/313062504 Commissioned by Harrison Bundey Mama Dread Masqueraders carnival troupe.

Empathy (dir Harry Sullivan), with Ogun Arts poets performing live at the screening their thoughts on David Oluwale; 3 mins).
