We are very excited to be holding the screening of our film, ‘Standing at the Crossroads’ at the Tabernacle during the evening of the 6th June. We have worked extremely hard over the past few months to create this blog, make the film and produce a variety of creative pieces ourselves – as have our teachers, Ms Brierley and Ms Wilson; along with Matthew and Sav from Digital Works. We are therefore looking forward to celebrating the outcomes of this hard work with not just our school community, but the wider local community too, especially those who have been so kind as to give up their time and expertise to make ‘The Kensington Creatives’ such an enjoyable and rewarding learning experience.
The evening will begin with our performance of Afrikan Revolution’s song ‘Standing at the Crossroads’ – we decided to give the film this name too after interviewing Niles Hailstones from Afrikan Revolution. You can watch us rehearsing with Niles Hailstones and Samuel Dubois (of Ebony, and another of our interviewees) on the following videos.
We will then perform some of the poems we have written (you can read all our poems here) and perform a soca-inspired dance to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Notting Hill Carnival, before showing the film.
We look forward to seeing you there!
