Friday, 26th Nov, in partnership with Brewery Arts we’re honoured to bring you a special Q&A screening of Ken Fero’s powerful and intimate documentary ‘Ultraviolence.’
The Q&A will feature Ken Fero himself, and one of the film’s subjects, human rights activist Janet Alder. Our CEO Janett Walker will chair.
Ultraviolence, which premiered at the prestigious London Film Festival last year, breaks the silence around harrowing stories behind the statistics of police killings of Black people in the UK. There have been over 2000 deaths of Black people at the hands of the police since 1969, and this number is escalating.
Weaving powerful, exclusive and often highly shocking material as the families of the victims of police violence demand justice, this reflection on resistance is poignant, capturing the brutality and trauma as well as the unrelenting determination of those who will not be silenced.
The documentary has received high praise from critics, and just yesterday won a prestigious Special Audience Award at the Nordic Labour Film Festival in Malmo, Sweden.
Guardian’s Chief Film reviewer Peter Bradshaw states that Ultraviolence: “makes every other documentary look obtuse and irrelevant”.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see this impactful documentary in the cinema and hear from the Internationally renowned filmmaker Ken Fero in a Q&A session, the first to take place in Cumbria before it continues its national tour, which is being supported by Black Lives Matter UK.

Ultraviolence: the shocking, brutal film about deaths in police custody… The litany of deaths is horrifying. But what gives the film its power is its humanity. ….proudly, cussedly uncontainable.” Simon Hattenstone, The Guardian
