DYSPLA_white lines360º film
The UK Electoral Commission warns that 1 in 4 Black and Asian people in the UK are not registered to vote. This form of political exclusion is systematic and designed to prevent political as well as civic engagement.
This 360º Artist film of poetic portraiture highlights the controls which block our democracy. Featuring Political Activists, Lawyers, Trade Unionists and Politicians filmed during the controversial Black Councillor de-selections in the 2017/2018 Enfield elections.
Black people make up more than a fifth, (20.6%) of Enfield borough's population, yet there are only 3 black Councillors out of 63. A lack of Representation is also present in all aspects of society from Education, Social-Economics, Health Care, The Judiciary System, and Culture. To change the system, one must first be a part of it and that starts with the most basic of political rights - the right to Vote.
