Here's what Vicktor wrote to us about the new First Movement film:

"But I find it fascinating that black boyhood, presented this way - existing within moments of such peace, tenderness and freedom - that it almost feels like an ethereal fantasy.

A shame that black liberation is often only acceptable when restricted to a battle of the mind.

So I protest with light. I publicly cloak myself in the softness this world attempts to deny and exclude me from.''
