Maureen Blackwood

“After completing a degree in Media Studies, writer/director Maureen Blackwood became a founding member of Sankofa Film and Video, a group of young Black filmmakers who came together to make films which offered new and often challenging visions of Black experiences. During her time with Sankofa, Maureen has pursued and developed her talents in the areas of writing and direction. She was Co-writer/Director on Sankofa’s first film The Passion Of Remembrance before going on to write and direct the award-winning film Perfect Image? Maureen’s more recent work includes A Family Called Abrew, a documentary which depicts the lives of a Black Scottish family spanning a century and she has just completed a British Screen/Channel Four Television 11-minute drama, shot on 35mm, Home Away From Home.

Maureen has also worked on many of Sankofa’s other films such as Territories, Dreaming Rivers, and Looking For Langston. Maureen has over the years organized a series of courses for people interested in media careers and most recently worked as Visiting Artist at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. At present Maureen is completing a feature length script Three Rooms, whilst developing other Sankofa projects.”
