Croydon Windrush Film Night & Discussion SAPPHIRE 1959 Living In London During The Windrush Era As part of the Croydon Windrush Celebration produced by “All Islands Together,” we present our film night set in foggy London during the 50s. The Windrush generation were moving into parts of London where they were not welcomed. A pregnant student Sapphire is murdered in London during the 50s, police discover she was a black woman passing as white, this film shows the “in your face” and undercurrent racism that was openly shown to the Windrush community. This film explores how some of the Police were openly racist and the racial tension that was in the air in the Windrush era. The soundtrack to this film is the London underground music scene with Jazz & Blue Beat, this “who done it”murder mystery film will keep you guessing till the end. See what London looked like back in the 50s with old cars, streets, houses, shops, and 40s-50s fashion. Listen to the language that was commonly used back in the day. WARNING Some people may find this film offensive, the language used is a reflection of the 50s After film discussion and Q&A with Dr Tony Sewell CBE and guests from the film world. 7:00pm-9:30pm,Free event David Lean Cinema (inside the Library building).
