Claudette’s Star is one of four New Commissions in the ICO’s 2020 national film tour, Second Sight. 

Acting as part ode and through a series of interpretations, Claudette’s Star depicts young artists considering with sheer wonder who is given a voice. Directed, produced and edited by Ayo Akingbade.

About the Second Sight New Commissions

In association with LUX, the ICO commissioned four new moving image works from artists Ayo Akingbade, B.O.S.S. Collective, Morgan Quaintance and Rehana Zaman. These films are part of the ICO’s 2020 national film tour Second Sight which explores the legacy, methods, aesthetic strategies and histories of the UK Black Film Workshop Movement which developed throughout the 1980s. Films are bookable as a collective programme or individually (please note South is no longer available for bookings).
