'Ajamu : Joyful Insurrection' – A Random Acts short film | Directed by Stephen Isaac-Wilson

  • Julie-Anne Vergez

In this experimental film, we celebrate the life and career of photographer and artist Ajamu, and use him as a conduit to explore the black British gay sexual experience. Since the 90s, his work has challenged understandings of sexualities, desire, pleasure and cultural production within contemporary Britain.
