Ingrid Pollard: Artist Talk with Film Screening

Saturday 3 October 2009, 2pm to 3pm

As part of Black History Month, international filmmaker and photographer Ingrid Pollard
will be discussing and showing her latest short film My Father’s Hands.

The film is a portrait of her parents including their migration from Guyana to the UK in the 1950s. Using archive photographs and audio interviews, she asks questions of remembrance and how we feel and articulate what is family and home.

Ingrid Pollard is a member of Autograph, the Association of Black Photographers, and an artist who has been widely exhibited in Europe and America since the 1980's. Her practice questions popular cultural notions of class, identity and 'Britishness', examining common-sense through genres of documentary, landscape and portrait photography.
