Opening Night: Nation on Fire: Roundtable Discussion with the New Black Panthers
Institute of Contemporary Arts

What You Gonna Do When the World’s On Fire?, Dir. Roberto Minervini, Italy / USA / France 2019, 106 min., English

Members of the New Black Panther Party will be joined by Roberto Minervini, who worked with members of the political group on his film What You Gonna Do When the World’s on Fire? in a roundtable discussion hosted by ICA Assistant Curator Ifeanyi Awachie.

Along with other guest speakers, to be announced closer to the date, the discussion will cover current day racial politics in the US and the historical and contemporary iterations of the Black Panther movement. By adopting a roundtable format, the dialogue will attempt to deinstitutionalise historical narratives of oppression and exploitation. The conversation will also address themes explored in What You Gonna Do When the World’s on Fire?, including life in black communities in the American South under the long shadow of Hurricane Katrina.

Join us for the World Premiere of Roberto Minervini‘s director's cut of What You Gonna Do When the World’s on Fire?.
FoR is presented in partnership with CHASE (Consortium for the Arts and Humanities South-East England).
