Isaac Julien's first work, Territories was a milestone in the development of a black independent film aesthetic. Territories , explained a contemporary press release 'refers not only to geographical spaces, but to the occupied and controlled spaces of race, class and sexuality.' Part One considers images of Carnival, Black diaspora culture in Britain and the 1976 Notting Hill Gate riots. Part Two looks in a more poetic manner at personal space, centering on the image of a black gay couple.
