Essential Cinema: Back inside herself – S.Pearl Sharp in conversation with Sarah Lasoye

This programme features a 24-hour online screening of S. Pearl Sharp’s Back Inside Herself (US, 1984) in collaboration with Cinenova. Described by the director as “a visual poem on identity”, Back Inside Herself shows a Black woman finding her own sense of self and rejecting hegemonic societal expectations of who she should be and how she should behave.
