In honour of Black History Month, Hanson FilmTV Institute presents the critically acclaimed feature film from British filmmaker and playwright debbie tucker green – shown exclusively on the big screen for the first time in the U.S.
ear for eye was adapted by tucker green from her highly acclaimed 2018 Royal Court stage production for the screen, with backing from BBC Film, BBC Two and the British Film Institute. It is the second feature film from the BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning writer and director.
From front rooms, kitchens and campuses to the streets, ear for eye follows Black families, friends, students and older generations navigating British and American society today. Visually inventive, ear for eye explores demonstrations vs direct action, violence vs non-violence, the personal vs structural and features an impressive soundtrack from artists including Run the Jewels, FKA twigs and Kano.
