The New Moorside Club

Holborn Approach, Leeds , LS6 2PD

A special double-bill film & food event by Leeds Palestinian Film Festival in partnership with Leeds Black Film Club.

The Story of Lovers Rock
(dir. Menelik Shabazz, 2011, 97mins)
We pay tribute to Menelik Shabazz, a pioneer in the development of Black British cinema and in the forefront of British film-making for over 30 years. Menelik died prematurely in June 2021. One of his most important films, this is the story of a uniquely British genre of reggae, a narrative of warmth, love and identity, born from the harsh black experience of the 1970’s and 80’s.

Palestine Underground
(dir. Jessica Kelly, 2018, 27mins)
Hip-Hop musicians defy the walls, rules and check-points separating Palestinians in Israel from those in the occupied West Bank. Making their music across boundaries is more than dance and party – it is "therapy for the identity crisis" and "a re-birthing of the Palestinian community".

The films will be followed by a discussion panel. Tickets are available online.
