Winner of Best Documentary at London Film Festival 2019, Rubika Shah’s lively and all-too-relevant debut documents the short-lived yet immensely influential grassroots movement Rock Against Racism (RAR). Inspired by ‘music’s biggest colonialist’ Eric Clapton’s drunken racist outburst during one of his concerts, founder Red Saunders promoted multicultural punk and reggae gigs as resistance to the emerging neo-Nazi movement though the nation’s youth. We follow RARs development from Hoxton fanzine roots right through to their massive 1978 Victoria Park carnival, which featured X-Ray Spex, Steel Pulse and The Clash. Come celebrate the film afterwards with the ‘White Riot’ afterparty.
