While national politics is an increasingly bleak proposition with increasingly inhuman spectres gracing TV and broadsheet, Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol cuts a figure of integrity and reminds us that local victories can be won. The first directly elected black mayor of a major European city - The Mayor's Race - Documentary follows his hard won 2016 bid for the Bristol Mayoral Election.
Rees' story of perserverence, mobility, class, race-relations has gained traction in Europe and the States and it's central message cuts beyond party political boundaries. Premiering last year after a successful Indiegogo campaign, here's another chance to see the crowd-funded film about Bristol's self-made Mayor at Bristol's most loved self-run cinema - The Cube Microplex.
