Film Screening: Sistren Theatre Collective ‘Sweet Sugar Rage’ (1985)


Grand Union

Join us at Grand Union for a screening of ‘Sweet Sugar Rage’, a film by Sistren Theatre Collective’ (1985), presented as part of Cinenova’s ‘The Work We Share’ programme.

Cinenova’s ‘The Work We Share’ is a national public programme of newly digitised films from the Cinenova collection addressing representations of gender, race, sexuality, health and community. The films are captioned by Collective Text, and supported by response commissions from contemporary artists and writers.

We will host their newly digitised film, Sweet Sugar Rage by Sistren Theatre Collective (1985, 43 minutes) alongside a new commission by artist Natasha Bonnelame inspired by the work.

Sweet Sugar Rage exposes the exploitation of women’s labour in Jamaica’s sugar cane fields and shares the themes and methods of Sistren’s workshops and theatre in the context of their wider efforts in education, employment rights and community activism.

There will be two screenings at 6-7pm and 7.30-8.30pm.
