Black Audio Film Collective


Black Audio Film Collective (1982, active through 1988). Founded in the UK in the 1980s amidst a rise in neo-fascism, police brutality and extreme racist violence, the Black Audio Film Collective (BAFC) produced some of the most poetic and provocative work of the last two decades of the 20th century, before breaking up in the late 1990s. Combining archival photographs, news clips and home movie footage, their films are both an exploration of documentary aesthetics and a wider meditation on social and cultural oppression that unfolds through various accounts of racism and economic decline in Britain.
