LOVE IN C MINOR: 

SOUNDTRACK TO A BLACK ROMANCE 

featuring 

The Perfect Guy, Waiting to Exhale and Carmen Jones

This choice of films makes a 'song and dance' about love for people of colour when they usually take a minor role when in comes to romance on screen. It is a journey into the darker side of love but also a celebration of knowing that love can conquer all as long as you move to your own beat. Join us as we sing from the same hymn sheet with local choirs, karaoke nights & special solo performances at these screenings as part of the BFI Love season.
