Get into the rhythm and experience the spirit of Notting Hill Carnival in 1980.
This kaleidoscopic record of the 1980 Notting Hill Carnival invites you into the busy streets, following floats and popping into community centers where performers prepare. The diversity of the crowd really makes Carnival, and here we see the original punks, the dancing coppers, the nostalgic Caribbean ex-pats. With no narrator, the film echoes the event's relaxed yet ecstatic rhythm.
