THE WORK WE SHARE: Anthology Film Archives, 16 – 20 July 2022

coloured text appears against a black background that reads 'the work we share' repetitively, forming 4 lines that are spread across the top, centre and bottom of the black rectangle.

We’re partnering with Anthology Film Archives to present The Work We Share programme: a series of newly digitised films from the Cinenova collection addressing representations of gender, race, sexuality, health, and community.
