From filmmaker Menelik Shabazz,  Looking for Love combines music and performances with intimate interviews exploring relationships within the UK’s black British community.  

Despite modern advances in communication technology, many people face loneliness and depression. This frank documentary from leading filmmaker Menelik Shabazz (Burning an Illusion) combines music and performance with intimate interviews exploring relationships within the UK’s Black British community.

Individuals, groups, psychologists and comedians consider love, sex, intimacy, psychology and forgiveness. Contributors include Dr Umar Johnson, Jackie Holder, Dr Dwight Turner, Susan Quilliam and and comedians Kojo, Andi Osho, Eddie Kadi, Slim, Mr Cee, Donna Spence and Glenda Jaxon.

As well as the film screening, we'll have a stand up performance from Mr Cee and he will be joined by fellow comedian and cast member Donna Spence for the Q&A.
