Fade to Black & STUN present: Looking for Love (film showing and talk)


Friday 12 February 2016 | 5.30pm | STUN Studio at Z-arts

Dating and the concept of love has changed so much over the last decade or so. Go back 50 years the man had to make the first move. But now dating is a commercial enterprise and a powerful emotional minefield. Online dating and social networking are the norm with the rise of dating websites and apps, like e-Harmony, Match.com, and of course, Tinder.

This no-holds-barred documentary from leading multi award winning British filmmaker Menelik Shabazz combines frank, intimate and humorous interviews alongside carnival footage and spoken word to explore modern relationships. The film focuses on the UK’s Black British community as a microcosm of British society. Individuals, groups, psychologists and comedians consider love, sex, intimacy and forgiveness

“Menelik Shabazz’s exploration of relationships in the UK’s black British community is laidback and likable” – The Guardian
