Monuments

 
A Donmar Local Project from the Donmar Warehouse

We love how our friends at the Donmar are showing up to move the world forward. This short film about how the legacy of the British Empire continues to impact our community, shows us that change is on the horizon.
 
Working with Donmar Resident Assistant Director Sara Aniqah Malik, writer Nessah Muthy, director of photography Fẹ́mi Awójídé and movement director Kane Husbands, a company of twelve Black, Brown and multiracial young Londoners have produced a bold short film exploring their own experiences of everyday racism. As anti-racism movements sweep the globe, young people are pushing for political action, drawing our attention to the racialised power structures embedded within society.
