This film can be purchased as part of the Welcome To: A Focus on Black Women Filmmakers collection.

The first film directed by a Black British woman to receive a UK theatrical release, Ngozi Onwurah’s Welcome II the Terrordome opens with an Ibo family choosing to drown themselves rather than be enslaved. This imaginative Afrofuturist depicts a dark dystopia where Black people have been relegated to living in a slum, the Terrordome. Ahead of her time, the urgency of Onwurah’s work was not realised at the time, but 25 years later it encourages us to interrogate the contemporary experience of Black people in Britain and police brutality, from history until today. 

This screening includes a Q&A with Writer and Director Ngozi Onwurah, and Producer Simon Onwurah.

Thanks to Simon Onwurah
