A Caribbean family living in London’s Notting Hill during the tension and violence that led to the 1958 race riots, where black homes where targeted and smashed, comes to a brutal realisation that life in post war Britain is far from the ‘Mother Country’ that would welcome them with open arms as they had been told to get them aboard the ‘Empire Windrush’ boat to help England rebuild after World War II…

2015 A Good Year – Happy Hols/New Year From Marlon Palmer (Kush Director)

Marlon Palmer
Director
18.12.15

 

Happy-Holidays

 

Greetings and salutations (Friends, Fans, Associates & Film Lovers),

It’s December (once again, LOL!) and almost time to end this year and bring in another New Year. Well after we have stuffed our faces, drank more than we can handle and immersed ourselves with family we both love and hate – well it’s got to be done!

This year from a film standpoint of view has been good, starting off with the January release of the much-talked about Selma and then Chris Rock’s ‘Top Five’ in May; two films we worked on. Paramount Pictures actually hired Kush Promotions & PR to market Top Five in 7 cities of the UK and allowed us to manage the budget. To allow us to manage the budget and nationwide-wide campaign was a justification of the 17 years of hard work and determination I have put in developing this business. After May PR work kind of dried up for us as the next big urban releases were from distributors who appear to have an issue with me/Kush; LOL! It appears I have told off the Head of International Marketing at both Sony Pictures and Universal over the years and I have not been forgiven TopFivePoster_smll(daam, I only told them the truth about their poor marketing of particular urban film) well seems like i’m “Blacklisted” – so be it – I will always speak my mind and tell the truth if some don’t like it, so be it! Was upset though, that we missed out on hip-hop films Dope and Straight Outta Compton; Sony & Universal film releases respectively.

Anyway the break away from Film-Marketing/PR was a Godsend (it was needed) as it allowed me to get back fully-focussed on the wide-ranging development of Kush Media. Something I wasn’t truly able to do for two straight years from October 2013 – May 2015 as Kush Promotions & PR became the go-to Specialist Independent PR Company marketing all black films month-after-month here in the UK (shhh! The remuneration was nice though). We also got to work on films like ‘Starred Up’ starring Jack O’Connell and The Maze Runner.

The breakaway allowed me to re-assess things and from that the ‘Kush Film Boutique’ was relaunched and in all that I do (even though it can be hard work) these days; I get the most satisfaction out of seeing the joy, dismay, shock, horror and amazement on patrons faces at our screenings – the wonders of film!

PR/Marketing work paid Kush well, and I strived hard to get to that position and be paid well but during the Top Five campaign earlier this year I realised that I wasn’t enjoying the work, it wasn’t why I started Kush Promotions back in 1998 and sitting in my office managing people (especially some of the difficult people I had to manage across the UK) became all so ‘Soulless’.

I had lost the joy of what I was doing daily and to wrap this part up – I believe in life to truly be successful you have to be fulfilling your life’s purpose and embracing daily the joy of all that you offer – once you lose that joy it’s time to reassess!

Anyway it’s going to be a very exciting end to the year with the massive impending release this week of Star Wars: The Force Awakens starring local Peckham Lad John Boyega whom we star-wars-force-awakens-posthankfully had time to meet whilst managing PR/Marketing for the film “Half A Yellow Sun” last year.

Straight away from speaking to John I knew he would be a star he was so down to earth, well-spoken and assured in his manner – definitely a star in the making and I said so at the time.

I can’t wait to see how well he exudes his persona off the big screen as the character ‘Finn’ in this massive blockbuster film; I’m sure he has done a fine job otherwise we would have heard already especially with all the earlier ignorant social media commotion about a “Black Stormtrooper”.

I won’t even go into that foolishness as it will bring down the tone of my newsletter and inveigle me into talking about dumb people from another galaxy!

Congratulations to rising star John Boyega and all the other British actors in the film (Daisy Ridley), and as a Star Wars fan it’s also great to see the old stars back; Harrison Ford as Hans Solo, Mark

John Boyega

Hamill as Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia and of course Chewbacca.

As you may have guessed I’m a sci-fi nut and love all films that expand our psyche to places unknown in the big ole galaxy. Bring on Superman vs Batman, Captain America: Civil War, Suicide Squad, Star Trek Beyond (with Idris Elba) and daam give me Black Panther now!!

Don’t forget get your tickets for ‘The Force Awakens’ this weekend! I’ve Got Mine

Wishing you all a fantastic Christmas, a blessed Kwaanza and a harmonious Eid plus a totally great New Year.

Keep Believing and doing!
Marlon Palmer

The Kush Film Boutique Is Back After 2 Years Away on 24 September

Marlon Palmer

KUSH_LOGO

 

Yes we are back!
It has been two full years since we ended Film Boutique screenings and we are more than ready to hit the streets again and carry the torch; once again lighting up the path for the development and progression of urban films.

Formerly known as the Kush Film Cub and launched in 1998 to create a platform for independent black filmmakers the film club has gone on to screen over 200 films, many of which were UK premiere’s or exclusive film screenings – Kush Film Club members were some of the first in the UK to see films like: The Players Club, Crash, Romeo Must Die, Me, Myself & Irene, Coach Carter, The Original Kings Of Comedy, Ray, Four Brothers, Hustle & Flow, Baggage Claim and many more.

Members were also introduced to a plethora of new indie filmmakers and their short films which was screened before the main feature thus introducing the world of independent filmmaking and local talent to new audiences.

Kush has also played a part in highlighting various social causes and community development using film as a tool to organise numerous community events along with training courses aimed at highlighting and combating Gun & Knife Crime, Youth Development, Drug Addiction and Community Cohesion.

One of the elements of the Film Boutique this time around will be the superb networking opportunity before the evening’s films, our aim is to bring progressive forward-thinking media personnel, entrepreneurs, community leaders and of course filmmakers together on a regular basic to ponder on and conspire for progressive change thus creating new opportunities for all.

Kush: Making a Difference in the Community since 1998!

Fruitvale Station Finally Hits UK Cinemas

KUSH PROMOTIONS & PR

The UK’s leading promoter of urban cinema
in association with new UK distributor Altitude Films
presents the UK release of the multi award-winning film.

FRUITVALE title Orange on Black

Quad_Fruitvale-Station_loreThis poignant award-winning film hits UK cinemas from 6th June 2014

The multiple Independent Spirit Award, Cannes and Sundance Film Festival winning film follows the true story of Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan), a 22-year-old Oakland, California resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air.

Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother (Octavia Spencer), being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz),  and being a better father to Tatiana (Ariana Neal), their beautiful four year-old daughter.

Crossing paths with friends, family, and strangers, Oscar starts out well, but as the day goes on he realises that change is not going to come easily. As he and Sophina celebrate the New Year and a fresh start, one truly shocking, tragedy shakes his community – and the entire United States — to its very core.
