Cat No: DSS0015

Who Killed Colin Roach? is Isaac Julien's first film, which reflects upon the death of Colin  Roach, a 23 year old who was shot at the entrance of a police station in East London, in 1982.
Even though the police claimed Roach had commited suicide, evidence  showed otherwise. Isaac Julien says that this work is essentially a response to the riots, an answer to certain fixed ways of looking at  black cultures, but also at those ways we might feel about ourselves.
