Workshop with Khalik Allah hosted by Dennis Lim
Director and artist Khalik Allah’s debut feature Field Niggas was Frames of Representation’s inaugural screening in 2015. This year, Allah returns to lead a workshop in which he discusses his focus on black communities in urban environments and the ethics of depicting marginalisation on screen. The conversation will investigate the ways in which Allah’s distinctive methodology seeks to resist the stereotypes that still often frame discussions of race and marginalisation, instead engendering an empathic and nuanced approach.
