Hakeem + Conversation & Performance

Book Tickets
Hak Baker, the subject of DEADHORSES' (James Topley and Ivo Becket) film, will perform on stage after the screening of Hakeem, and will discuss the documentary portrait with its directors.
This unconventional music documentary follows an unconventional musician. Filmed over five years, this accomplished feature debut by the Dead Horses (James Topley and Ivo Becket) walks an entertainingly thrilling line between profundity and profanity as Hakeem confronts the trauma of class and masculinity in the shadow of his unexpected and sudden stardom. An anarchic yet sincere portrait of British lad culture,Hakeem is more than a chronicle of a musician's life – it’s a fascinating and intimate portrait of existential angst, brotherhood and hope in the face of the taboos that surround male mental health in the UK. A music doc of the rarest kind, it's one that melds arresting aesthetics with depth and a savage honesty.
