Ballarat Film Society – White Riot
April 14 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
In late 1970s Britain, fascists and racists were gaining ground, extending their influence across popular culture.
This film documents a vital London protest movement established in response. Rock Against Racism (RAR) was formed in 1976, during a hostile environment of anti-immigrant hysteria and National Front marches. As neo-Nazis recruited the nation’s youth, RAR’s multicultural punk and reggae gigs provided rallying points for resistance.
‘An excellent documentary about a heroic grassroots political movement whose importance reveals itself more clearly in retrospect with every year that passes’. (The Guardian)
