Dope Black Dads Present: Inside Out
Why are there so few positive and constructive conversations around black fathers? A group of black dads based in London have come together to address this and provide a progressive discussion around the male parenting experience, discussing the highs and lows of what it means to be a black father in today’s society. Hackney Picturehouse are pleased to present a season of screenings in partnership with Dope Black Dads. Hosted and curated by DBD founder Marvyn Harrison, these family friendly screenings will feature an introduction from Marvyn, a screening of a great family film, and a post film discussion. The films have all been chosen by Dope Black Dads. These screenings are for all parents who are passionate about seeing black people and especially fathers in a positive light. Tickets are £8 for adults and £5 for children under 15. Disney Pixar’s entrancing animated fable follows eleven-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias), who is reluctantly uprooted from rural Minnesota to San Francisco. We see her experiences mostly through the emotions inside her head, colourful little characters who organise memories and generate ideas. Five of them – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) – compete over how best to help her deal with the challenges of a new life. When Sadness and Joy get lost in Riley’s mind, they must trek through Imagination Land, Subconscious and Dream Productions to find their way back and stop the other emotions taking over. This magical and heartfelt film from director and co-writer Pete Docter (Up, Monsters Inc.) will intrigue and entertain audiences of all ages with its psychedelic visioning, sharp script and abundant sight gags.
