Sir Horace Ove: BFI to celebrate work of pioneering photographer, filmmaker and activist
The BFI in London is currently honoring Sir Horace Ové, who was an important figure in photography, film-making, and activism. He was instrumental in bringing the experiences of Black people in Britain to a wider audience through his work in TV and film.
Ove, who passed away in September at 86 years old, held the honorable distinction of being the initial director of a full-length feature film in Britain to be of black descent.
Recently, Pressure was re-released to honor his remarkable achievements.
