Completing the work of celebrated filmmaker , Menelik Shabazz

Film director Menelik Shabazz (1955 – 2021) was a true pioneer in the British film industry, being one of the first black directors to make his mark in the mainstream with his film Burning an Illusion in 1981. He went on to make many more films, including the renowned The Story of Lover’s Rock. Menelik was a master of his craft and we feel truly privileged to have opportunity to complete The Spirits Return on his behalf.
