Event description
Pempeople presents A Special BHM Screening of HERO - Inspired by the Extraordinary Life and Times of Ulric Cross

About this Event

Described as "possibly their best event ever", HERO screened at Peckhamplex in June.

"The audience was so numerous we had to move it to one of our larger cinemas and the Q&A with director/writer Frances-Anne Solomon afterwards went on so long it delayed the next screening. It was a pleasure to watch and clearly meant so much to many of our audience members."

Now HERO returns to Peckhamplex to launch the nationwide tour!

7:30 pm: JOIN US for a PEMPEOPLE Reception

Nicholas Okwulu and Pempeople invite you to join us for Rum-punch and Doubles, before the screening of the hit movie "HERO - Inspired by the Extraordinary Life & Times of Mr.Ulric Cross"

8:30 pm: Film Screening of HERO hosted by Pempeople.

10:30 pm : The film will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Paulette Harris German with the director Frances-Anne Solomon, lead actor Nickolai Salcedo and others TBA.

Director: Frances-Anne Solomon

Starring: Jimmy Akingbola (Holby City), Joseph Marcell (Fresh Prince of Belair), Fraser James (Terminator) and starring Trinidad's Nickolai Salcedo as Ulric Cross.

The Story: In 1941 Ulric Cross, a young man from Trinidad, left his island home to seek his fortune. He survived the Second World War as the RAF’s most decorated West Indian airman, but then his life followed a very different course, leading him to become a central figure in the independence movements sweeping Africa in the ’50s and ’60s.

HERO is not just about Cross’s extraordinary life and journey but about the dynamic and transformative times in which he lived. It tells the untold story of those Caribbean professionals who helped to liberate Africa from colonialism, shining a light on an important chapter in Caribbean history, and on Caribbean identity itself.
