GENERATION REVOLUTION brings to screen the powerful story of a new generation of black and brown activists who are changing the social and political landscape in London and beyond. This feature-length documentary film follows an exciting new breed of organisations as well as the young Londoners that are part of them. The London Black Revolutionaries, or ‘Black Revs’, have a predilection for dramatic, raucous, direct action: from sabotaging anti-homeless spikes; organising a die-in at the Westfield shopping centre to staging a “Black Brunch” against gentrification. Younger than the Black Revs, R Movement challenge the idea of the ‘Staid and Serious’ political activist. Having formed on social media, they’ve turned online debate into political action. Born out of irreconcilable differences with the Black Revs, The Black Dissidents are a new organisation intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class and gender.
