The Afropean Express

SAT 09 Oct 2021

The Afropean Express + live soundtrack by Bare Knuckle Soul + Q&A + short films

Afropean—Notes From Black Europe is a book that traces the steps and experiences of Sheffield writer, journalist and photographer Johny Pitts as he examines the life of black communities, whilst travelling across Europe. In search of the “Afropean” identity, he sketches an underexposed story about the continent in words and images.

The Afropean Express is a short film, music and audio piece made by Johny and long term collaborator Chris ‘Finguz’ Morris as an attempt to capture the unique multi-sensory experience of voyage, place and discovery. It was made on a week-long trip through some of the book’s key locations and train journeys, including the (now scrapped) historic ‘Le Train Bleu’ night train from Paris to Marseilles. The film features the voices of many of the writers and social commentators Johny met and interviewed on his journey, with location sound recordings, an original score and spoken word. The pair will present and discuss the creative process of making the film and perform the soundtrack live in their guise as Bare Knuckle Soul.

The evening will also feature a debut screening and performance of Spirit Of Dead Buildings.
