Retro Rewind: ‘Burning An Illusion’

Published: Saturday 30th Nov 2019 by David

Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to celebrate some of TV and Film’s forgotten gems.

Only right then, days after Thanksgiving, that we give thanks for ‘Burning an Illusion’…a  movie many consider to be one of the greatest British movies ever created.

The release is the second British feature film to be made by a black director and is celebrated for its decision to place a black woman at the centre of its story. Groundbreaking for a movie launched in 1981.

Love ‘The Imitation of Life‘?

Have a great deal of respect for Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’?

‘Illusion’ awaits below…
