Founded during the racially volatile days of the early Thatcher government and active for sixteen years, the Black Audio Film Collective produced some of the most challenging and stylish art of the first generation of black British filmmakers. In The Ghosts of Songs, acclaimed artists, filmmakers, and scholars examine the legacy of the collective’s innovative and wide-ranging work in film, video, and installations as well as their provocative essays and manifestos. Packed with rare photographs and previously unseen film stills, The Ghosts of Songs is a thorough assessment of the group’s entire career.
