The Light of Black Sunlight (2021) A film by Wales Bonner and Jeano Edwards

The Light of Black Sunlight, produced in collaboration with filmmaker Jeano Edwards, becomes a film memory of the Wales Bonner Autumn Winter 21 collection entitled Black Sunlight – the concluding chapter in a trilogy of collections by Wales Bonner revealing threads between Britain and the Caribbean. Black Sunlight illuminates a world of Caribbean Thought and Black British intellectualism.

Captured between Port Antonio and Kingston in Jamaica and London’s Goodenough College, this exploration of transcendent, intersectional intellect reverberates with the ambient sounds of musician Laraaji – resonating the rich complication of diasporic sound and creation.
