INQUEST are proud to premiere The UK is Not Innocent: the story of INQUEST at the Castle Cinema in Hackney on 24 April at 6.30pm.

The UK is Not Innocent is a 45-minute documentary film made by Rainbow Collective as part of INQUEST’s 40 Years heritage project. The film traces INQUEST’s evolution from a grassroots collective of families bereaved by state-related deaths to an established charity providing expertise on deaths in custody, exposing forty years of state violence and resistance in England and Wales.

Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with the Richard York & Hannan Majid (Directors), Aji Lewis (mother of Seni Lewis), Naomi Oppenheim & Jessica Pandian (Producers). Join us at the cinema’s bar afterwards to continue the conversation. 

The UK is Not Innocent features Benjamin Zephaniah’s last recorded poem. Our patron for over 20 years, we are honoured to showcase his poem as part of the Benjamin Zephaniah National Memorial Events Calendar.

The INQUEST shop will be open, so get your t-shirts, tote bags and badges including our special edition merch in collaboration with Black Lodge Press.

INQUEST is independent of government and entirely reliant on grants and donations to continue our vital work. We need to recover some of the costs for hosting this event, so have four ticket options, from super supporter to concessions.

Booking for this event has now closed.
