Title: Contrived Passions and False Memories
subtitle: The Passion of Remembrance by Sankofa Film/Video Production and Handsworth Songs by Black Audio Film Collective Production
Reviewed by Michael Cadette

From the article: “Neither The Passion of Remembrance nor Handsworth Songs are good films. The films are competently produced. But there is no escaping the fact that they appear to be the results of photogaphic projects and go no further than that.”
