Young Soul Rebels, 1991 Dir. Isaac Julien 105 mins Set in East London in 1977, the year of the Queen's Silver Jubilee, Isaac Julien's first narrative feature film follows friends Chris and Caz and traces the racial and sexual tensions between the emergent subcultures of soulboys, punks, and skinheads. A sensitive coming-of-age film, a murder mystery, and a love story, Young Soul Rebels received the SACD critics prize at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival. It also features an early appearance of Academy Award nominee Sophie Okonedo alongside a pitch-perfect soundtrack that includes Funkadelic, X-Ray Spex, and Sylvester.
