This week’s special film is The Story
of Lovers’ Rock (12A), an unusual and characteristic
film about the uniquely black British music
that developed in the late 70s and 80s.
It includes live performance, comedy sketches,
dances, interviews and vibrant archive footage
of the music and the generation that grew
up with it. Interviews include Levi Roots,
Linton Kwesi Johnson, UB40, Maxi Priest,
Janet Kay and Angie Le Mar. See http://www.loversrockthefilm.com
for the unofficial trailer. It is directed
by Menelik Shabazz, sometimes dubbed the
Spike Lee of black British cinema, best
known for his award-winning film Burning
