Title: The Ghosts of Songs: A Retrospective of the Black Audio Film Collective
Date: 28 April - 24 June 2007

From the text: “The Black Audio Film Collective (BAFC) was founded in 1982 by seven undergraduates in Sociology and Fine Art: John Akomfrah, Lina Gopaul, Avril Johnson, Reece Auguiste, Trevor Mathison, Edward George and Claire Joseph, who left in 1985 and was replaced by David Lawson. The Collective formally dissolved in 1988. Based in East London, the group produced internationally aclaimed films, video - essays and slide tape work, initiated courses and workshops, curated film programmes and participated in debates around independent, alternative cine-culture.…”
