Being hailed as 'the British Moonlight', Shola Amoo's The Last Tree explores themes of identity, belonging and coming of age. Come explore these themes in a relaxed writing workshop for all abilities with poet Be Manzini. Attendance is free with a ticket for The Last Tree.
The workshop will begin after a post-screening Q&A with director Shola Amoo.
'Film-Poet' Be Manzini has found ways to uniquely combine her passion for poetry, film and well-being. Manzini was the first Writer In Residence for Sundance, poet-on-tour with film charity Birds' Eye View, poet on Mark Kermode MK3D live and writing facilitator for Virgin Sport. Known for her ability to create universal and nurturing spaces as a workshop facilitator she teaches adults and children alike.
A writer and speaker who has been resident at the Southbank Centre, is a regular panellist for film, Manzini is also the Director of Caramel Film Club spot-lighting Black talent and supporting diversity.
Manzini's poetry-films have shown at the Royal Festival Hall, ICA, BFI and various cinemas and film festivals in the UK and abroad.
