A mysterious and intimate fable in the guise of gritty social realism, simply and powerfully acted”. The Guardian
Black Cultural Archives is pleased to announce its 2015 film season, in partnership with Ritzy Picturehouse, Brixton.
The Staying Power: Black Britain on Screen season launches on Monday 8th June with a special presentation of the Second Coming, the highly acclaimed debut film by playwright Debbie Tucker Green, starring Idris Elba and Nadine Marshall.
Set in present day London, Jackie (Nadine Marshall) is pregnant and knows it’s not her husband’s (Idris Elba). She says she hasn’t slept with anybody else, now she doesn’t know if she is losing her mind. Communication, trust and intimacy are at the heart of this warm, fearless family drama as Jackie struggles to explain news of her pregnancy. Over the course of a year the film follows Jackie, husband Mark and their 11 year old son JJ (Kai Francis Lewis) as this ordinary family struggles for answers as accusations start to fly.
