Generation Revolution brings to screen the powerful story of a new generation of black and brown activists who are changing the social and political landscape in the capital and beyond. This feature-length documentary follows an exciting new breed of organisations as well as the young Londoners that are part of them.
The film vividly chronicles the evolution of the protagonists as they experience personal and political awakenings, breakthroughs and, at times, disillusionment. Generation Revolution offers a unique and original glimpse into the rewarding but difficult path that must be trodden in the struggle for personal, social and political liberation. There is already a hunger amongst London’s young people to have an active discussion around many of the ideas approached in the film, and this urgent documentary presents modern protest and activism in its many guises.
