“Generation Revolution” is a 2016 British documentary that brings forth the powerful perspectives of a new generation of black and brown activists, committed to changing the social and political landscape in the capital and beyond.
Directed by Cassie Quarless and Usayd Younis, this film follows an exciting new breed of organizations, as well as the young Londoners that are part of them. The London Black Revolutionaries, or ‘Black Revs’, have a predilection for dramatic, raucous, direct action. R Movement challenges the idea of the mainstream idea of a political activist and The Black Dissidents are a new organization, intent on furthering the fight against oppression along the lines of race, class and gender.
The film vividly chronicles the evolution of our characters as they experience personal and political awakenings, breakthroughs and, at times, disillusionment. “Generation Revolution” offers a unique and original glimpse into the rewarding but difficult path that must be trodden in the struggle for personal, social and political liberation.
