Archive footage and drama are used to tell the story of his extraordinary life: a story that encompasses WWII, African independence movements, Black Power and the rise of a new brand of black leadership around the world, events that define our present reality. We’re pleased to host this UK premiere and welcome special guests to the BFI stage.
