Sex And The City:
The World according to Woke Charlotte
Fri 4 May, 20:20 - Cinema 2, HOME.
90 mins - £9/£7 conc
2018 marks the 20th anniversary of one of TV’s most influential shows. Despite being groundbreaking for its depictions and discussions of straight female sexuality and life, the show garnered a reputation for being more than a little problematic when it came to issues of gender, race and queer sexuality. This in part led to the viral meme of #WokeCharlotte, where fans used screencaps to show the errors of the show when addressing prominent issues.
Pilot Light proudly collaborate with London’s Reel Good Film Club to examine the impact the show had on women of colour and the progress made in on-screen representation in the past two decades, through a live script reading of the pilot recast entirely with people of colour, followed by a discussion on Sex & The City, identity and race.
Our ensemble cast features babirye bukilwa (BBCThree’s Saltfish & Ackee), Sarah Sahim (Culture Journalist, Pitchfork), Samio Olowu (Model & Fashion Blogger), Emily Lloyd-Saini (Actress & Comedian), Kiell Smith-Bynoe (Actor, Hood Documentary), Nathan Bryon (Writer/Actor, Benidorm, Reality) and Grace Barber-Plentie (Founder, Reel Good Film Club).
