Horace Ové



Horace Ové, holds the Guinness World Record for the first Black British filmmaker to direct a feature length film, « Pressure » (1976). In addition to his TV work, Ové has documented racism and the Black Power movement in Britain in films such as « Baldwin’s Nigger » (1968) and « Dream to Change the World » (2003). Perhaps his best-known film, « Playing Away » (1987), centers around the residents of a British village who invite the « Caribbean Brixton Conquistadors » for a cricket match. In 2007 Ové was awarded a CBE, Commander of the British Empire, for his contributions to film in the UK.
