William Sellers and the Colonial Film Unit developed a framework for colonial cinema, slow edits and minimal camera movement, no camera tricks. In an effort to recuperate black dance from this colonial project, Specialised Technique, attempts to transform this material from studied spectacle to livingness.

Developed with the support of Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), Arts Council England and the Fenton Arts Trust.
