Artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy are joined by film critic Ashley Clark to discuss their latest film, A Lament for Power!

Artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy are joined by film critic Ashley Clark to discuss their latest film, A Lament for Power. Alongside Emma MacNicol, our moderator for this evening’s event, they will expand on the ideas and inspiration behind this extraordinarily insightful film.

A Lament for Power explores the ethics of scientific discovery and the complex relationship between science, politics and race in our everyday lives. Weaving together images from sources that include the gaming world’s ‘Resident Evil 5’, Larry Achiampong and David Blandy create a space to make visible the sometimes murky world of scientific research as they probe at the economic and racial divides that underpin our social structures.

Join us online for a fascinating evening of debate and conversation, including a viewing of A Lament for Power.
