Dalton's Dream + Conversation

Book Tickets

Screening of Dalton's Dream, followed by a conversation with directors Kim Longinotto & Franky Murray Brown and artist Dalton Harris.

In 2018, Jamaican national Dalton Harris became the first non-British and Black man to win X-Factor UK. Shot over four years, Kim Longinotto and Franky Murray Brown’s film charts a tumultuous period in Dalton’s life. It deals with his traumatic upbringing and journey to the X-Factor final, as well as the subsequent challenge to build on his success. However, in contrast to other portraits of pop singers’ lives, Dalton’s Dream celebrates the way Harris emerged, embracing his identity, often in the face of prejudice – both at home and in his adopted country – and forged a life defined by his own desires and ambitions.

Content Guidance: contains mention of suicide, addiction, and homophobic language.

Open Captions - spoken dialogue and sound effects in the film will be converted to text and appear on screen.
