Film4 Summer Screen - Selma Tickets

Somerset House, London, WC2R 1LA
  • The Film4 Summer Screen presents a film of formidable power from Ava DuVernay, who turns an episode from the history of the civil rights struggle into an incendiary dramatic thriller with Selma.

    This is a film that’s intricately plotted and full of intrigue and surprise, like the great Hollywood films of the 1970s, but which also knows how to fire up its audience so that we can feel as well as think. When the time comes for Martin Luther King and his followers to march, it’s hard to think of many sequences in cinema that are as urgent and powerful. The marches in 1965 come between the famous I Have a Dream speech in 1963 and his assassination in 1968, the 50th anniversary of which is being marked this year.

    British actor David Oyelowo is remarkable as the civil rights leader. In his performance, he shows dignity, determination, intelligence and anger, not to mention the humour and compassion essential to helping everyone through such difficult times. This is undoubtedly a film to watch on the big screen and to share with others, both to celebrate the power of Ava DuVernay’s vision and to feel the strength in coming together as a group for a collective experience.
