About Andrea Luka Zimmerman Civil Rites

Preview plus artist talk: Thursday 7 December, 5.30-7.15pm

War, poverty and racism – what has changed in the lives of people in Newcastle today?

Tyneside Cinema is proud to present a new film commission from 2017 Artist in Residence Andrea Luka Zimmerman, made in Newcastle with local residents.

Taking as a starting point Martin Luther King’s 1967 speech, given on receipt of his honorary doctorate, from the University of Newcastle, Civil Rites explores how the core themes of poverty, racism and war continue to haunt our lives. It listens to the voices of Newcastle citizens as they think through their responses to these themes, and locates these voices in dialogue with key sites of resistance from across the Tyneside region and across the centuries. It seeks to learn what has changed (or not) in the lives of people in Newcastle today.

CIVIL RITES NEWCASTLE WALK: Saturday 8 December, 11am.
A walk from Newcastle Central Station to the West End of Newcastle taking in key sites of resistance featured in the film CIVIL RITES. Led by human rights worker, IKWRO Coordinator and Angelou Centre board member Pat Garrett, the Angelou Centre’s Rosie Lewis and Andrea Luka Zimmerman.
