For the first time ever Yellow Wednesdays presents a full Weekend Of Wednesdays! Bringing cinematic activism across two full days. Expect everything from ‘fire in the belly’ uprising through to small actions for global change, WOW brings new films and old together with a whole host of special guests to get you feeling excited, uplifted and inspired to create change.

 

To close the first day of Weekend Of Wednesdays we have a powerful and inspiring film that gives an insight into the work and conditions of young revolutionaries in the UK. Followed by what is expected to be an equally powerful discussion, this event is one not to miss.

Generation Revolution brings to screen the powerful story of a new generation of black and brown activists who are changing the social and political landscape in the capital and beyond. This feature-length documentary film follows an exciting new breed of organisations as well as the young Londoners that are part of them.

The London Black Revolutionaries, or ‘Black Revs’, have a predilection for dramatic, raucous, direct action. R Movement challenge the idea of the ‘Staid and Serious’ political activist and The Black Dissidents are a new organisation intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class and gender.

The film vividly chronicles the evolution of our characters as they experience personal and political awakenings, breakthroughs and, at times, disillusionment. Generation Revolution offers a unique and original glimpse into the rewarding but difficult path that must be trodden in the struggle for personal, social and political liberation.

Yellow Wednesdays is a monthly film night at Impact Hub Birmingham showing everything from local artists, interesting indies and super social commentaries.

As the golden sunlight from a warm Brummie sunset glistens through the windows of Impact Hub Birmingham, members and guests alike close the lids of laptops and breathe a sigh of relief as another day of world changing activities comes to a close. Meanwhile, a laptop lid is opened, coffee is poured and seats are dragged into a seating arrangement fit for the kings, queens and all those in between, ready to consume another evening of spectacular film programming.

Yellow Wednesdays brings a mix of cinema, from the submissions of local Brummies, through to the more ‘Cannes film festival’ less ‘Odeon multiplex’, captivating stories from all other the world. We aim to bring a rich and diverse programme of films to fill your year, and you can catch it all at Impact Hub Birmingham, every 3rd Wednesday of the month.
