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

What kind of power is accessible through the discovery of a voice? Looking at personal and communal empowerment through vocal training and liberation movements in London and Chicago, South also explores what happens when speech is ignored, and the voice fades.

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).
