Stella Vision in partnership with Can’t Stop Won’t Stop and Nubian Link will launch the ‘Fade II Black Film and Music Lounge’ on December 14th 2018.

Fade II Black Film & Music Lounge is a pop-up cinema; a space for people to discover new films & music and reconnect with classics. The programme includes panel discussions and music and encompasses the broader world of urban music, arts & culture and music entertainment. The event is located at the Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Recording Studio in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter.

The programme will launch with a screening of Soleseekers (2018), the UK’s first feature-length documentary on UK trainer culture with a Q&A with the film’s director Emil Socialize and and music from DJ Psykhomantus. At the core of the programme are the five pillars of Hip-Hop philosophy with a key focus on Knowledge. “Knowledge of self” refers to the Afro-diasporic mix of spiritual and political consciousness designed to empower members of oppressed groups”. This thought shares the vision that African Bambaataa had of hip-hop as a force for social change. (Quote: Travis Gosa).

the concept evolved from requests for a space to come together collectively and ‘hang out’ like back in the day, when we all used to chill, watch films and listen to music together
