Arthouse Crouch End presents a screening of one of Britain's pioneering Black independent film-makers, Horace Ové who was the first Black British filmmaker to direct a feature-length film, Pressure. Set in Ladbroke Grove, West London, an area with a large Caribbean population since the 1950s, the film explores the assimilation (or otherwise) of Caribbean people into British society. Focussing on Anthony, a British-born, black teenager, when a Black awareness meeting is violently raided by the police, and Anthony sees these 'organised forces of repression' at work, his political awakening begins.
