Folkestone Documentary Festival: Black Outside

How can the connections made by people of colour with the outdoors transform our relationships with the land and, in a time of anthropogenic climate crisis, help us redefine nature itself?

With a particular focus on people of the African and Caribbean diasporas, Jaha Browne’s WE ARE NATURE and two short films from Folkestone filmmaker Rhiana Bonterre trace the personal, communal and ancestral experiences of people of colour with the land and natural surroundings of the UK and the Caribbean, uncovering affective histories of separation, alienation, longing and reconciliation.

Film & Group Walk led by Fran Hajilou (Entangled Roots), followed by outdoors Communal Meal
