    ***PLS ONLY RSVP WHEN YOU HAVE PURCHASED YOUR TICKET/S*** TICKETS here: http://bit.ly/BTFCanITouchIt We are supporting our friends at Bechdel Test Fest who are partnering with Underwire Festival for a specially-curated series of shorts made by, and dedicated to, women of colour and the identity politics of their hair. Women’s identities, their heritage and their agency are bound to the hairs on their head, and women of colour feel this in their day-to-day lives more than most. Through this lovingly-curated series of shorts from directors all over the world, and via animation, documentary and narrative films, Bechdel Test Fest will highlight the love, politics and unity that comes from having hair deemed ‘different’ and the cultural and personal significance of their afros, curls and kinks. Following the films all are welcome to share, listen and learn in our post-screening discussion with special guest speakers. Hairatage filmmaker Aisha Sangyang-Meek will treat us to a live spoken word performance, followed by a conversation with fellow filmmaker Soraya Milla (Exotiqué) who is joining especially from France. Emma Dabiri, who’s new book Don’t Touch My Hair and will be available to buy early next year from Penguin, will also be a special guest speaker. Dabiri is a regular broadcaster and is the writer and presenter for documentary Is Love Racist which aired on Channel 4. Hosted by Bechdel Test Fest founder Corrina Antrobus. FILMS Aisha Sangyang-Meek - Hairatage Filmmaker and performer Aisha Sangyang-Meek presents a stunning spoken word, exploring the social, political and personal associations with her hair.

Founded in 2010, Underwire is a BAFTA-recognised festival running screenings, training and networking events and is committed to spotlighting and platforming women in film. @UnderwireFest . facebook/underwirefestival . underwirefestival.com About Bechdel Test Fest Founded in 2014, Bechdel Test Fest is the ongoing celebration of films that pass the Bechdel Test. In order for a film to pass the test, it must have: two named women, who have a conversation with each other, about something other than a man. The test was inspired by US cartoonist Alison Bechdel’s comic The Rule in 1985. Screenings take place in and around London throughout the year and celebrate positive, dynamic representations of women on screen. @BechdelTestFest . facebook/bechdeltestfest . bechdeltestfest.com
