Roots/Routes Episode 1: Our Story
Episode 1. Our Story
The first episode in this five-episode docu-series introduces our Nottingham-based researchers, artists and creatives via objects they find meaningful ranging from a passport to a newspaper compiled by community groups. These objects invite the ideas and issues addressed in their research and practice: creativity, community, art, the environment, identity and self.
Directed by Nottingham-based Black feminist filmmaker, Patricia Francis and scored by the ambient/dub duo, Space Afrika, Roots/Routes is an upcoming documentary series and collaboration between Nottingham Contemporary and the University of Nottingham that centres the work of Black researchers and thinkers in and around Nottingham.
