On the 14th July DIFFЯNT teamed up with SOAS ACS and SOAS BME Network for a free screening of the iconic movie, Do the Right Thing accompanied by poetry performance from Poet Lib’rateBecksy Becks and Shadé Joseph.

Exploring some of the themes in the movie the poets answered on the main question, what is the right thing?. Released in 1989 Do the Right Thing was controversial for its themes covering police brutality, racial tension, gentrification and even the unfamiliar topic of climate change.

Now considered one of the greatest movies for its cultural significance and contribution to 20th-century filmmaking, screening this film poses the questions: How relevant is the film today? When is the right time to do the right thing? And what is the right thing?
