Young Soul Rebels (1991)

The hedonistic world of DJs Chris (Valentine Nonyela) and Caz (Mo Sesay) – who operate a pirate radio station called ‘Soul Patrol’ from a tower block in Dalston – is shattered when a close friend is killed while cruising in the local park.

The black community suspect the National Front, but the police pull Chris in as a suspect.

The plot is convoluted and confusing and the acting is generally poor, but the film is set in the days before the Queen’s Silver Jubilee celebrations and provides a nice time-capsule view of London in the summer of 1977.
