Born in Trinidad in 1939, Ové is known as one of the leading black filmmakers to emerge in London in the post-war period, achieving worldwide recognition for his feature films Pressure (1976) about growing up in West London in the 1970s. Playing Away (1986) describes the experiences of a Brixton-based cricket team. As well as his film work Ové has been documenting, as a photographer, Britain's black diaspora community, the birth and development of Notting Hill Carnival over 40 years. Uniquely he has chronicled the leading figures emerging from the black community in the fields of art and politics.
