I am interested in the history of London riots am I am looking for the London Riot Re-enactment Society. I found them on the website but the email adress for joining bounces back. Just wondering if you know of anythng like this or have another contact email phone number for them.
Yes regrettably it dose seem to be a joke but the idea it there I teach run and organise mediale and Viking groups (teach sword and spear technique) we all so allow fighting across history (HEMA) i.e. Viking vs renaissance gent in the same vane has ultimate warrior to work in a modem riot officer would be fun and that could led to a offshoot of Riot Re-enactment sound like it could work. If your interested email me at email@example.com
Birmingham film maker and photographer Pogus Caesar knows Handsworth well. He found himself in the centre of the 1985 riots and spent two days capturing a series of startling images. Caesar kept them hidden for 20 years. Why? And how does he see Handsworth now?.
The stark black and white photographs featured in the film provide a rare, valuable and historical record of the raw emotion, heartbreak and violence that unfolded during those dark and fateful days in September 1985.
