As part of the year long #Spikeis60 film festival, events company We Are Parable will screen Spike Lee’s controversial Bamboozled starring Damon Wayans and Jada Pinkett Smith, at HOME Manchester on Saturday April 29th.
Telling the story of Pierre Delacroix, a TV executive who creates a modern day minstrel show in order to get himself purposefully sacked, this satire remains as compelling and relevant as ever, 17 years after its release.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, hosted by Akua Gyamfi, Founder of the British Blacklist, which will explore the themes raised in the film.
Panelists include: Delia Rene (Vex in the City), Emil Collins (Socialize Media), Jennifer G Robinson (Eshe Media) and Adrian Scott (Melllow 9 Productions)
