'And This Too Shall Pass: Decolonizing Film’
by Dr. June Givanni and Jan Asante
Cinema archivist Givanni and curator Asante’s film revisits the era of the Black Film Bulletin, founded at the British Film Institute in 1993. The film essay retraces the iconic voices of Black artists, filmmakers and cultural commentators who contributed.

‘I see you Vero, I see you Rosina: finding our common threads’
by Veronica Betani and Rosina Maepa
Betani and Maepa live more than 1000km apart in South Africa and have never met. In the film the two artists use WhatsApp to exchange details of their lives affected by COVID-19, finding ‘common threads’ as they both create embroidery artworks.

‘Particulate Matters 2.5’
by Jennie Pedley
Artist and NHS physiotherapist Jennie Pedley reconstructs the ‘crown’ of the coronavirus to explore threats to the health of the body and the environment. The film draws our attention to the cause of the ‘underlying conditions’ that have scarred the landscape.

Peltz Gallery

The Peltz Gallery is at the heart of the creative hub that is Birkbeck's School of Arts, which also includes Birkbeck Cinema and a dedicated performance space.

Founded in 2013 with the help of a generous donation from Elizabeth and Daniel Peltz, the Peltz Gallery showcases the creative, interdisciplinary and experimental research of the School's academics and postgraduates. It also provides curatorial and professional training for postgraduate students. Exhibitions profile the work of emerging and established artists and aim to stimulate intellectual engagements between academics and practitioners.

Since opening, the Gallery has gone from strength to strength, with a comprehensive programme of exhibitions and events. We have a growing reputation for exploring the critical role of visual art in politically and historically contentious topics and in humanitarian debates.
