A newly commissioned film by Zinzi Minott reflecting on the legacy of the Windrush Generation.

Transmission is excited to present a newly co-commissioned film, available to screen on our Covid-19 Response Page. Click here to access.

The film is produced and commissioned by Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, Spike Island, Bristol and Transmission, Glasgow. In Zinzi’s own words, “Fi Dem is a durational work being performed now for three years. Each work is a filmic manifestation of a year lived, a body moved, and moving through a reflection on the legacy of The Windrush Generation.” Both Fi Dem I & II were screened as part of the festival’s 2018/19 programme. Fi Dem III will premiere at Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival followed by screenings at Spike Island and Transmission.

Zinzi Minott’s work explores how dance is perceived through the prisms of race, queer culture, gender and class. She is interested in ideas of broken narrative, disturbed lineage, and how the use of the glitch can help us to consider notions of racism one experiences through the span of a Black life. Zinzi has been an artist in residence at an array of esteemed institutions, such as Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Serpentine Gallery; and currently with Somerset House and Once Dance UK Trailblazer. Zinzi is also commissioned under ‘CONTINUOUS’, a four-year partnership between BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (Gateshead) and Siobhan Davies Dance.
