Various venues throughout the festival
The Hull Mantra:
1000 declarations of faith in the city

Ian Killen has been producing text-based artworks for twenty years and these frequently take the form of collective paintings where large numbers of contributions are invited from the public. Ian will attend various events throughout the festival and invite contributions towards The Hull Mantra: 1000 declarations of faith in the city. The mantra will take the form of 1000 individually handwritten ‘Hull’s on a specially prepared surface.

Hull Screen, Albion Street - 7.30pm
Veronica Guerin
Dir. Joel Schumacher USA/Ireland 2003 1hr 30mins
£3.50/£2.50 Box Office 01482 327600

A powerful and emotional film, based on a true story, which provides a unique insight into a fascinating and complex aspect of an Irish conflict and is a poignant portrayal of a journalist who risked her life in search of the truth.

Guerin (Cate Blanchett) covered the crime beat in Dublin during the 1990's with unmatched intensity. It was a time when a few powerful Drug Lords battled for control and she was seen, by many, as their most fearsome opponent as she investigated and exposed 'the pushers', balancing her home life and family against her responsibility to her readers.

The Warren Centre - 7.30pm
Freedom of Expression
Free Tel 01482 218115

An inspiring performance from young people at the Warren with Zimbabwean performers Husi, celebrating dance, music and words. With USIZO community choir and local musicians.

Dressed in traditional costumes, Husi, a truly exceptional act, will join the young performers as they present powerful, energetic dance and wonderfully controlled harmonies to the sound of feet stamping to create intricate rhythms. Spectacular, versatile, and loud!

Presented by The Warren Centre in association with USIZO, a newly formed cultural association set up by Zimbabweans who have recently fled the Mugabe regime and settled in Hull. USIZO will form part of the community choir on the evening, and have worked with participants through workshops to develop tonight's programme.
