Black Female Cops

UK   2019   55 mins

Dir: Ibrahim Clayton

In the late 1970s/early 1980s, against a background of social unrest and racial tension in the United Kingdom, four young black women made the decision to join the West Midlands Police. Black Female Cops explores the reasons they chose to join the police at such a divisive time, the challenges they faced as ethnic minority officers, both institutionally and from their own communities, and how they overcame these obstacles to become pioneers in their chosen profession. With candid interviews with the officers as they reflect on their careers, shine a light on Black-British history and ponder on how the world has changed or hasn’t changed since those times.

DELTA 7EVEN

UK   2019   45 mins

A post-punk band made up of adults with learning disabilities discover their resilience, united strength and the power of creativity following the suicide of one of their members. Heart-breaking yet warm and unexpectedly funny DELTA 7EVEN is a life affirming celebration of neurodiversity and inclusion, with a unique inside into group dynamics and refusing to live a life dictated by stereotypes.
